Hello Team Mansfield Families, 

 

Welcome to 7th grade and Team Mansfield! We hope that you are finding time to relax and enjoy summer. We are the Mansfield team, consisting of: Ms. Chafai (Science), Mrs. Gilbert (Math), Ms. Faulkner (Humanities), and Mr. Van Duyn (Special Education). We are very excited to work with you all and are ready for any adventure or challenge we face! We have some helpful information to share with you at this point.

 

To ensure that we begin our year on a positive note, we would like to make all students and families aware that hand-held devices, such as cell phones, tablets, earbuds will not be permitted at school per our school-wide policy. If a student chooses to bring any of these items to school, we ask that these remain in students’ backpacks until the end of the day. Please see the Welcome Letter from Principal Briggs for more information about this policy. 

 

The annual ice cream social is Monday, August 29, from 4:30 - 5:30 this year. Homeroom and core class lists will be provided on the first day of school August 31st.  

 

We will send home a weekly newsletter throughout the year to keep you up to date on all of the team’s current happenings. We will reach out to get the most accurate email addresses for parents and guardians, as that is how the newsletters are sent home. Please let us know if your email address changes at any time during the year. If you have any questions, please contact us through email at tigilbert@ewsd.org, tchafai@ewsd.org, sfaulkner@ewsd.org, and/or jvanduyn@ewsd.org.

 

Again, we would like to welcome you to the Mansfield Team! We look forward to getting to know all of our students and families!  

Sincerely,

Tiffany, Sarah, Jim and Twila
