Hello students and families,
Welcome to 8th Grade Literacy, Community Leadership, and Unified Arts! We have a busy and exciting year ahead.
Literacy Materials: This year every student is receiving a Chromebook and most assignments will be completed online, however there are a few items that I ask each student to have for class each day:
1/2 Inch Binder (A larger binder can be shared with other classes)
Headphones (Check Chromebook compatibility)
Dry erase markers
Goolge Meets: Literacy students are required to "Meet" during assigned times on their Remote Learning days.
Literacy students will "Meet" from 1:25pm - 1:45pm. These meetings are mandatory and will count as your attendance for the day. If you cannot join us during this time, please email me as soon as you know. We will be discussing progress of remote assignments, as well as expectations for the following day. The links for our Google Meet sessions are posted on our Google Classroom.
Extra help will be offered to students who need it by appointment only from 2:30 - 2:55, Monday - Friday via Google Meet.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment if needed.
I encourage you to check my teacher page as often as possible. If you ever have any questions or concerns—about grades, assignments, expectations, or anything else—please let me know.
Feel free to email me about any questions and concerns.
