Welcome to 8th grade English!
Your ELA class this year will include both literature, writing, and grammar. School supplies for ELA will include a 1 ½ inch binder, a folder with prongs and pockets, one tab divider, a composition notebook, red pens, pencils, paper, and highlighters.
Responsibility and organization are a big part of 8th grade ELA!
Late papers are deducted 20 points each day late and accepted up to 3 days late.
A class contract will be sent home to sign the first few days of school. This must be signed and returned ASAP.
Each student should bring a reading book to class EVERY day.
In case of absence, it is the student’s responsibility to check Schoology 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 if it is not provided on Schoology.
