Greetings, 8th grade ELA learner!

Welcome back to school!

If you haven't yet, please join our Google Classroom and ask your caregiver to join, too.  It's where you'll find important information, assignments, and rubrics.  The code for your block is below.

Block 2/3:  pjgtyop 

Block 4/5:  6sf7u7y

Block 7/8: pt5s52x

In our class, you are my heroes.  We will make mistakes, but when brave enough to share mistakes and learn from them, we are heroic.  We read for pleasure and information; write for pleasure, self-expression, explanation, and persuasion; and develop our vocabulary to increase our ability to communicate and read.  Being a bibliophile, guiding your lessons is my pleasure.  I hope you enjoy learning about our texts, making connections, and challenging your mind as much as I do!  I can't wait to meet you!
