Welcome to Mr. Moeller’s class! My goal is to ensure your child has a productive and enjoyable school year.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns — firstname.lastname@example.org
Homework will be posted daily by 7 p.m.
Sixth-grade parents: Please initial and return brown envelopes as soon as possible. With your signature or initials, I can be assured that you have seen the belongings of the envelope.Also, please check your child’s daily schedule. He or she has a copy.
All essays should be in a 12-point, double-spaced, Times New Roman format. You may email or submit your essay on a USB.
Essays or specified writing assignments should be submitted on the assigned due date unless there is a reasonable excuse. They can be accepted two days after the deadline, but full credit will not be given unless there is a viable excuse. An essay submitted without a viable excuse three or more days after the deadline will result in a grade of “zero.”
I am available for extra help in the mornings at 7:15 and Wednesday after school from 3-3:45. An afternoon time can also be arranged.
