    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    I am very happy to be partnered with you this year in your child's education here at Gates Chili.  I firmly believe in our district's philosophy, policies, and goals.  I also strongly believe we have the best teachers around; ones who genuinely care for and hope for your child as if they were our own.

    I can say this without reservation because I am a product of Gates Chili School District, and the "head start" I got here in our schools greatly increased my chances for success as an adult. 

    My mission as your child's teacher is to not only pour my knowledge of science into them, but to also help them grow in maturity, and respect as they go through their toughest years yet - middle school.

    I encourage you to be in your child's corner all year.  Give them your unfailing support with school, homework, social pressures, and the changes they face.  Let them know that we will do our jobs as teachers and parents to work together to see them through, but that we will also hold them  responsible for doing their very best also.

    Looking forward to a wonderful year together,

    Mrs. Mantisi
