8th Grade – Richardson

September Newsletter

Teacher Message: My name is Mrs. Richardson and I will be your teacher this year at Forest Academy.  I am so excited to learn with all of you this year!  I am new to the Forest Family, so let me tell you about myself.  I graduated in April 2017 from Western Michigan University with a degree in Elementary Education.  I have minors in Language Arts, Math, and Early Childhood General and Special Education.  I was born and raised in Portage, MI.  My favorite subjects are Math and Language Arts, but I love to learn new information about any subject!  I have four younger sisters.  I have been married to my husband Kam for 1 year and we have a cat named Moose. In my free time, I like to run, be outside, and read!

Gym Shoes: Please make sure that students have a pair of gym shoes that stay at school.  The shoes are only worn in the gym in order to keep the gym floor clean and usable.

Uniforms: Students need to wear navy blue pants or skirts.  They need to wear white collared shirts.  When it is cold, students may wear sweaters that are plain grey, white, or navy blue.

Homework:  Homework will start the second week of school.  Students will have nightly math homework.  They will also be expected to work on big projects at home as well as school.   Due dates will be written in their planners.
