Class supplies for 8th grade English include: 1 ½ inch binder, 1 folder with prongs and pockets, 5 dividers with tabs, 1 package of 3x5 notecards, black pen, red pen, pencil, 1 composition notebook, loose leaf paper, 2 boxes of Kleenex (girls), 1 tub of Clorox wipes (boys), hand sanitizer (optional). We will be reading the novel Across Five Aprils by Irene Hunt in the third/fourth quarter. We have class sets of books. However, students are welcome to buy their own to read at home and make notes.
Late papers are deducted 10 points each day late.
Parents, a class contract and an AR contract will be sent home to sign the first few days of school. These must be signed and returned ASAP.
Each student should bring an AR book to class EVERY day.
In case of absence, it is the student’s responsibility to ask for work and to complete the work within the allowable time frame (1 day for each day missed). If board work was completed in class during an absence, it is the responsibility of the student to get the work from another student or the teacher.
