Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

            Hello, I want to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year at Patrick Henry Middle School.  My name is Mr. Farner and I am your child’s Special Education caseload teacher. I make it a point to introduce myself to you and your child the first week to give you information on my schedule and contact information. 

            I will be co-teaching 8th grade Language Arts with Mrs. Karner and Mrs. Balavitch throughout the 1st Trimester. My prep period is 2nd period which runs from 8:45am to 10:00am. My schedule may change slightly for the 2nd Trimester and I will inform you of those changes if they occur.

            The best way to reach me is by email. I check my email daily and can usually get back to you within 24 hours. You can also call me at work and leave a voicemail.  I can only return calls on my prep period and15 minutes after school. My email is farnerc@wbsdweb.comand my phone number is 734-362-6100 ext 2167. Feel free to contact me anytime.

            Lastly, I want to inform you and your child of my expectations for them this year. I try to get students to be responsible for their education.  This is always a work in progress for students. Being prepared for class, having their assignments completed, paying attention in class and following school rules are a few of the responsibilities that I expect students to work on. I will be here to help and guide them on their journey this year.           

            I also will be conducting your child’s IEP meetings this year and I will send out reminders via email and/or phone. Please email me so I can have your email address on file.  I look forward to a great year.Together we can make this a successful year.



Mr. Farner
