    Dear Parents/Guardians,
    The teachers of the Talon Team would like to welcome you, as well as our students, to the 2013-2014 school year.  We are excited about this year and hope to make it an outstanding one for all team members.
    The middle school concept is centered on an instructional model known as teaming, where a group of students have the same three or four teachers for their academic core subjects.  The remaining teachers will be elective teachers and a physical education teacher.
    This organizational model gives students and teachers a sense of belonging to a small group that has common goals and expectations and whose members are supportive of each other.  It also allows the teaching team to monitor your child’s progress as it meets regularly to plan a challenging program for each student.
    Our team has established a set of rules and procedures, which should insure consistency in all classes and a suitable learning environment for all students. 
    Teaching is our profession, but we feel that you, as the parents of our students, are the first and most important teachers they have.  You know much more about your ‘pupils’ than we do.  We rely on your support.
    If you have any questions concerning your student’s progress at Eagle Ridge Middle School this year, please call the office and schedule a team conference.  We will be more than happy to meet with you.
    The Team Talon Teachers
