8th Grade English
Have you checked our LESSON PLANS today??
Consequences for misbehavior may be: a verbal warning, a conference with me, parent notification, detention, and/or principal notification.
AR points, tests, projects, and some writing assignments will count twice. Late or incomplete assignments will be accepted up to three days after the due date at a cost of 30 points off. After that a zero will be given and students will be required to go to RAP during Advisory to make up the grade.
Accelerated Reader (AR) Grade:
Students will receive two grades per nine weeks and will receive rewards for their efforts. One-half of the points must be earned by mid-term every nine weeks, with the remainder due near the end of the term. Students who do not have 50 percent of their points at mid-term but achieve them later in the nine weeks will have their grades increased. Although there will occasionally be time for reading during class, students should read at least 30 minutes per day at home. Typically students will need to read three to five books per nine weeks in order to achieve their goals. Students will not receive points for an AR test over a book is under their reading level.
This is a privilege. You will be allowed to bring snacks and/or drinks on Fridays only. If I have to clean up after a student, snack day will be lost for the rest of the semester. Gum is not permitted at any time. Bottled water may be brought every day.
Parents may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am available to meet by phone or in person before or after school or during my preparation time, which is 2nd period (11:20-12:08). I post my lesson plans online each week at schoolnotes.com. Parents may also arrange with the school office to view grades online at wpsok.powerschool.com.
