Hello, and welcome back to school! 

This will be your...BEST.YEAR.EVER.  

The theme of our class this new school year is "Let your dreams set sail."  As a boat's sail opens to let the wind steer its course, you will also open your minds and let learning steer your direction to success.

Parents, please be sure to set up your parent access to Genesis, in order to check your child's grades, attendance, and schedule for the new school year.  

Any questions?  Any comments?  Any concerns?  Send me an email at 
mkosmoski@sapublicschools.com, and I will quickly respond to your message.

Cell phone use policy for this class:  Students may bring their phones to class.  They place their phones in the clear plastic pockets located on the storage cabinet.  
Rewards System: Ties in with phone usage.  When students accrue "points" throughout the morning, a designated stopping time is assigned by me for "phone time."  A few students have gained minutes of phone time when completion of work and appropriate behavior have been evident during periods one through three.


The following pictures will be updated soon.  The students have been working on items for display! 

I will post photos of our classroom soon.

Please read the following posts after the photo section: Get Good Grades, Classroom Work and Grade Policies, and Our Classroom Rules and Responsibilities



Get Ready to Work Hard!!!
