Dr. Cox

Welcome to Dr. Cox's 7th-8th Grade Class Site!

This year we will be taking a Road Trip to Success! Your students will be mastering their math, reading and writing skills through various avenues of learning. As with any well planned road trip, your students will learn how to map their ideas to organize details and their thoughts to produce meaningful sentences and paragraphs.  Besides working on these basic skills, they will also be studying science and social studies.

Besides the academics, we will work on social skills.  Every child is different, both in personality and in learning styles.  I truly believe that each child has potential and can be successful.  They are Kids at Hope.  They are talented, smart and capable of success.  Each one has dreams for the future, and they can reach those dreams.  All children are capable of success, and there are no exceptions.

I feel that Dr. Seuss sums up our coming 2014-2015 school year perfectly in his book, ­Oh, the Places You'll Go!

"On and on you will hike.

And I know you'll hike far

and face up to your problems

whatever they are.

You'll get mixed up, of course,

as you already know.

You'll get mixed up

with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step.

Step with care and great tact

and remember that Life's

a Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?

Yes!  You will, indeed!

(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!"
