• Dear Parents,

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Ms. Tara Lochner and I will be your child’s Math teacher. This is my sixth year teaching and second year teaching at Riverwood. I am overjoyed to have your child in my class and I look forward to sharing an exhilarating school year with him/her. My commitment as an educator will be to provide your child with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure his/her academic success.

    Since the 7th grade mathematics curriculum is rigorous and challenging, your son/daughter will  be responsible for various assignments that may require a commitment of time on his/her weekend to complete, however, these occasions will be limited and you will be given advance notice of when they will be due to class. 

    Since attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process, it is important that your son/daughter attends school every day as a mature and responsible student. During the first week of school, I will be working together with my students to reinforce classroom procedures, rules, rewards and consequences. Your son/daughter should be on campus no later than 8:00 a.m. to ensure they get to class on time. Instruction will begin promptly every day. If an absence or tardy is unavoidable, your son/daughter will have the opportunity to complete their missed assignments, however, it is their responsibility to check the “Absent?” folder for their work.

    Please look on my website on the Riverwood main page for future communications regarding assignments and other news. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you in advance for your support and partnership for the upcoming school year.
