Dear Student and Parent/Guardian:


            Welcome to Shafer Middle School and a special welcome to the 7A Roadrunner Team. We hope you have been having an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to beginning your middle school experience.  We are looking forward to working with you to make your seventh grade year an enjoyable and a highly successful time.  We have listed below some of the things we will do to make that happen:

·       Shafer SHARKS Certificates for following the SHARKS Creed

·       Amazing A Drawings once a week for earning As on tests and quizzes

·       7th Grade field trip

·       Extra help whenever needed

·       Periodic emails for Roadrunner happenings


You will find the items needed for each of your subjects and teachers on the reverse side of this paper. We need you to have these things on the first day of classes.  To make it easier for the students to stay organized, we have color-coded each subject area as follows:


·       Math – blue

·       Reading – purple

·       Writing – green

·       Social Studies – red

·       Science – yellow


            We would also like to create a file of email addresses as soon as possible.  Ms. Schreiner is in charge of this address file.  Please email her (dschreine@bensalemsd.org) so you are added to our Roadrunner Parent email file!  Thanks!


            Also, if you have any general questions before school starts, you can email our team leader, Ms. Schreiner (dschreine@bensalemsd.org), and she will get back to you as soon as she can!  In addition, please check in frequently to the Bensalem School District Website (www.bensalemsd.org) for the latest Roadrunner updates!


            We hope you and your family enjoy the rest of the summer and again we look forward to working with you this year!
