Dear Parents or Guardians,

     I'm looking forward to beginning the new semester.  I am writing this letter to let you know more about your child's teacher and class.

     My name is Thomas Fennessey.  This is my 17th year teaching mathematics at James Island Charter High School.  I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with your son or daughter this year.  My goal as a teacher is to insure that every unique student within my classroom reaches their highest level of ability.  I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to learn and succeed.

     I plan on maintaining office hours throughout the semester to enable your child to receive help on an individual bases when required.  My office hours are listed below; however, I am flexible and willing to adjust my schedule if needed.  Please feel free to call the school anytime you need to speak to me.  My phone number is 762-8478.  That number also connects you to the Fennessey Homework Hotline where you can access you child's current practice assignment.  Practice Assignments can also be found on the school website http://jichs.ccsdschools.org/ and through Remind 101.  My e-mail address is thomas_fennessey@charleston.k12.sc.us.  If unavailable, I will make every effort to contact you within 24 hours.

Extra Help Hours:  Tuesday       3:00 - 3:45
                                  Thursday     3:00 - 3:45
                                  Mornings     7:30 - 7:55


     I am ready to help make this year a success for your child.  In order to make this possible, I would sincerely request that your family work closely with the school.  Please be involved in your child's education.  My job is to provide your child every opportunity to succeed.  Their job is to take advantage of those opportunities.

Thank you,

Thomas Fennessey
