 Re: Welcome to Room 12!
 Dear Parents, Welcome to your child’s 2019-2010 school year. All of us, at Rivera Middle School, are looking forward to working with you and your son/daughter this school year. Together we can achieve success in reading, writing, grammar and other aspects of Language and Literature. Communication is very important and I will do my best to let you know what is expected in my class through the website, minder-binder and  letters home. You may also contact me at 562) 801-5088 or via e-mail <[email protected]>.  E-mails are the BEST way to contact me, I check them throughout the day.
 Attached is a list of supplies, class rules and consequences and a wish list of supplies we can use in room 12. Please discuss the Rules and Consequences page with your child and sign and return to school by 8/20/19.  I look forward to being a positive influence in your child's life.
Sincerely, Sylvya Cordova
Rivera Middle School
