    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,


    Welcome to a great new year at The Learning Academy!  I am honored to have your child in my class, and I am excited to work with you and your child throughout the year.  I know that we will have a successful, exciting, and productive year. I look forward to being a part of the academic progress your child will make.


    Your child will find that I am tough but fair.  I have extremely high academic and behavioral expectations for my students.  I expect EVERY student will learn to the best of his or her ability and achieve more in one year than they ever thought possible.


    Because you are an integral part of your child’s education. I feel home-school communication is of vital importance.  I hope to talk with the parents and/or guardians of each of my students in the coming weeks.  I would like to extend an invitation for you to contact me at any time.  I can be reached through the main office at school (910-572-1161) or via email (Click here for the link to email Susan Starnes)  If you would like to talk in person, I am always available to schedule appointments before school, after school, or during my planning period.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


    There are several ways you can help your child succeed in my class.


    ·         Ask your child what he or she learned in school each day.  This simple routine will help them review and find holes in their understanding.

    ·         Emphasize the importance of hard work.

    ·         Encourage your students to ask questions in class and come in for extra help when they need it.  I am available before school, during lunch, and after school.  Also, praise them for doing well….they deserve it!!



    Mrs. Susan Starnes
