Dear Parents of students in my sixth period class,

Sixth period is one of my smallest classes. With this being said they are one of the most challenging with regards to talking and off-task behaviors.  I have spoken with students and given strikes as needed, along with adjusting seats in the class.  Students are continuing to carry on conversations while I am teaching the class.  Students are blurting out comments constantly in class.

I am asking for your assistance to speak with your child. If you child is caught being disruptive, I will be issuing detentions from this point on.  Disruption is a class one offence.

Regards,

Mr. Wilson
