Welcome

Hello Parents and Students,

 

Welcome to Ensign Intermediate!  This year in Language Arts we will be exploring various forms of literature and writing, focusing on developing critical and analytical thinking skills, and becoming independent thinkers and learners.  Please remember that I am always here for you.  If you have questions about the materials or your grade, or if you need extra help, my door is always open. 

 

I look forward to a wonderful year with you!
