Mr. T.J. Langston
Hello, and welcome to Mr. Langstons Class page. My name is T.J. Langston and I look forward to being your childs Physical Science teacher this year. In Physical Science we discuss topics such as the Periodic Table and Chemistry, Motion, Light, Sound, Electricity, etc.. This is my 3rd year teaching here at Ashworth and my 6th year teaching overall. I am a native of Calhoun and graduated from Calhoun High School before attending The University of Georgia where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Science Education. While also in Athens I met my wife Delaney, we've been married 5 years and have a 2 year old daughter named Adalei. Some of my hobbies and interests include, hunting/fishing, watching movies, playing games, and spending time with my friends and family. I look forward to getting to know your child this school year, and if you ever have any questions or concerns feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LAB FEES - In Physical Science we do many labs and projects throughout the year and we try to have everything ready to go for those labs rather than asking parents to run to the store and send stuff in. In order to help fund these we ask for a $5 lab fee from every student, this should be turned in to me by Friday August 10th if at all possible. This money is a huge help for us so please help us out anyway you can. Thank you in advance for your help and understanding.
No Cost Breakfast - This year Gordon County Schools is proud to offer breakfast to ALL students at no cost to the families of our community. This program is being piloted and is being paid for through the Free/Reduced Lunch program run by the Federal Government. As such We humbly request that each family that believes they would qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch to fill out the form located HERE so that the County may receive the funds to continue this program in the future. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation.
Class Rules and Expectations - In the 8th grade we expect all of our students to know the basics of how to behave in the classroom. As such I try to keep my rules simple.
1. No talking while the teacher is talking.
2. Students should not be out of their seats or moving about the room without permission.
3. Show respect to the teacher and classmates, as it will be shown to you.
Beyond these three rules we of course have the cellphone policy highlighted in my syllabus as well as the student handbook.
Other expectations are that students come to class prepared with a CHARGED iPad, paper, pencil, etc. and that they give their best effort while in my classroom.
