STAAR Review
School Phone: 281.357.3030 x1265
Parents,
We begin our STAAR Review on March 20th ....we will have a total of 13 days of STAAR prep. Each Friday we will have a checkpoint over those concepts reviewed that week. There will be 3 checkpoints that will add up to equal 1 major grade. It is so important that your student not miss school during this time. We greatly appreciate your support. Please check my website for links to videos and homework. Our countdown begins..... Tutorials will be every Tuesday afternoon from 3 - 4 pm. 
Thank you.
 
 
Please explore the website and become familiar with the pages. I will be posting important information throughout the year as well as homework assignments and upcoming tests.

A little about myself, I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M University!  Originally, I was in Business Management and decided to make a change in 2006.  It was truly one of the best decision I have ever made.Teaching has been very rewarding. I have 3 hobbies that I enjoy: reading, cooking and traveling.  
 
To be successful in Math this year.  Your child will have homework to build skills and increase content comprehension. 
 
My conference period is 7th period and I would be happy to meet with you.  I do ask that you set an appointment with me through email 24 hours in advance and let me know what your concerns are prior to the meeting.  This way, I can be prepared and your time will not be wasted.  Please feel free to e-mail me anytime during the work week. My goal is to return all emails within 24 hours Monday through Thursday.  lindaolivarez@tomballisd.net  My e-mail is NOT connected to my phone or home device.
 
I incorporate technology in our lessons and will require the use of technology inside and outside of my classroom.  Please allow your child to use technology at home.  I will give instructions on which sites are approved for which projects and assignments.  
 
Tutorials are held: Tuesday  afternoons from 3 - 4 pm: a late bus is provided for students. If a student requires additional assistance on other days of the week, tutoring appointments can be scheduled for after school, but a parent or guardian must be able to pick up the student by 3:30 pm.
 
Students will be given the opportunity to master the curriculum and to improve one major grade per grading period according to the following guidelines: 

Each nine weeks, students will be given a grade recovery opportunity.  This will be a cumulative nine weeks assessment, given at the end of the nine weeks.  The grade earned on the grade recovery will replace a major grade, up to a 70.  Students must request a time to complete the grade recovery assessment with their teacher. Test will be given the last week in each 9 week grading period. Please view these deadlines on the District Calendar. Thank you.

Thank you
