And so much more!

Welcome! I am pleased to have the honor of instructing your child in his or her eighth grade Language Arts course. Eighth grade is a very exciting time for the students as they begin to prepare for high school. I am excited that I can be a part of that experience. I have included below some important information that you will need to know about what to expect form this course.
The goal of this class is to develop awareness of language and to sharpen skills in critical reaidng and effective writing.
2 pencils
2 pens (black and red)
2 colored highlighters
Class colored divider in binder to separate Language Arts work form other subjects
All students are asked to write the class assignments, activities, and homework in their planner each day. The planner should be taken home each day so that parents can review the daily assignments.
If a student is absent it is their responsibility to obtain the assignments from the make-up work folder upon their return. Any work that was assigned prior to an absence is due the day you return to class. If a student is going to be absent several days their parent should call the main office to obtain work from the class. The students are given as many days to complete assignments missed as they are absent.
