• Welcome to 8th Grade Literacy

    “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” -Martin Luther King, Jr. 


     It is my belief, that when families and teachers work together, a student will experience more success.  You are an integral part of your child’s education, I feel home and school communication is very important. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns that may arise throughout the school year at mjgagliardi@jacksonsd.org.

    Thank you in advance for your support. By working together, this year is going to be phenomenal! 

     Please Note: 

    I will also be team teaching with Mrs. Cascio during period 4/5 and Mr. Pratt during period 7/8. 

    Please see Mrs. Cascio's Classpage for additional information for period 4/5.

    Please see Mr. Pratt's Classpage for additional information for  period 7/8.
