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 novels Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan in the first/second quarter and 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. Please remember that honors students are expected to approach material with a mature and independent manner.
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.
Late papers are deducted 10 points per day.
Each student should bring an AR book to class EVERY day.
