• Welcome to Mr. Gliatta's 7th Grade

    Literacy Class!

     Any missing work from remote learning needs to be turned in to your teacher by Tuesday, April 21st  (right after Spring Break).  Any work that is turned in will be giving 'passing' credit.  Any work not turned in or still missing will have a negative impact on your 3rd marking period grade.  If any student is dealing with a difficult time that has impacted their work being done, you need to reach out directly to your teacher.  

    Please check my Google Classroom Pages for upcoming assignments from our At Distance Learning Program.
