Mr Baksh's 603 Math Class - 603 Math

  • September 7th 2017


    Dear Parents/Guardians:


    Welcome!  Sixth grade is an exciting time filled with many new and exciting experiences for your child.  In math, we will be learning new skills and participating in interesting and rigorous activities.  Our classroom community is:

    -        a safe, equitable, environment where students feel safe taking academic risks

    -        an environment of high expectations—students will be challenged and expected to perform at their best! 

    -        a respectful environment—students will be motivated, inspired, and build strong character. 


    The relationship between parents and teachers is vital to the success of all students.  Consequently, I am asking you to write a brief letter or email describing your child.  Please include information that will allow me to gain a perspective of your child, not only as a student, but also as an individual.  This information will be invaluable in helping me to understand your child’s strengths and areas for growth.   Please include in this letter your contact information (name, email, and phone number).  My email is: rbaksh2@schools.nyc.gov

    I look forward to having a productive school year.  I leave you with two quotes that personifies my educational philosophy.

    “It takes a village to raise a child.” –African Proverb
