Welcome to Mr. Minks' Fine Arts Classroom!

Ric

     I am delighted to have your child as a student in my classroom this year. My class will include  the areas of art and theatre. We can look forward to many exciting and rewarding experiences as the year progresses.
     I believe that success depends on self-discipline; therefore, I have developed a classroom discipline plan that gives everyone the opportunity to manage their own behavior. This plan will be in effect at all times.
 
Classroom Rules:
1. Be respectful ( be kind to others)
2. Be responsible ( do what is expected)
3. Keep your body to yourself.
4. Follow the teacher's directions.
5. Listen and pay attention during instruction.
 
     To encourage students to follow the classroom rules, I encourage appropriate behavior with praise, positive notes, activity choices, and prizes.
 
     Your child can benefit greatly from involvement in my classroom. I therefore also expect full participation and cooperation with myself and others at all times. Finally, I expect your child's very best effort on all assignments.
 
    My room number is 123. I am available for conference 7:45-8:40 am Monday- Friday.
 
     With your support and involvement, this year will be the most successful ever! Let's get started!
