Welcome Back!

I am so excited about the 2015-16 school year!  This year I will be teaching 8th grade Physical Science for two blocks with Mr. Schupska, one block of ELA with Ms. Wood, and one block teaching my favorite subject, Georgia Studies with Mr. Tolbert.

I plan to use the website to post upcoming test, post study guides, graphic organizers, and memory clues for the subjects I am teaching.  You can also check out the website for Mr. Schupska, Ms. Wood, and Mr. Tolbert for other needed information.

Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions at pbrett@jackson.k12.ga.us.

Go Eagles!

Parent Conferences

Parent conferences have been changed due to the snow break.  If you have not scheduled your meeting, please contact your child’s first block teacher as soon as possible.  Student’s will be leading their conferences, but teachers are available to answer any questions and provide feedback.  This is a special time for your child, but also for the teachers.  Together we can work to make sure your child receives the instruction and support needed to be successful.

Look forward to seeing you all soon!
