Welcome to Ms. Apple's Language Arts class


    Hello 8th grade and Honors I students! As we enter our 4th quarter of learning we will embark on an exciting journey of "distant learning".  This means that lessons will be conducted outside of the classroom until further notice.  I will be updating this webpage frequently, sending reminders through the Remind app, emailing, and conducting Zoom lessons.  Please ensure that you have signed up for Remind.  Please see Class codes below:

    Text class code to 81010

    1st period  @2g6da7

    2nd period @h9ag6fh

    3rd period  @c6gkde6

    4th period  @ad28be

    5th period  @9fke4g

    6th period  @a9fefg

    Check your Google Classroom daily.  I will be posting assignments from CommonLit.  You will be able to Skype or Zoom with your peers to work together on these assignments.  Please continue to journal all the events happening.  Share your journal entries with me weekly, so I may grade them.  This is the very first assignment I sent out the first day back from Spring Break.

    My office hours will be one hour before noon and one hour after noon.  This will be conducted over Zoom or Remind.  You can ALWAYS reach me by REMIND if you have any questions. 

    I will post 2-3 assignments weekly.  Please work on your I-Ready lessons.  That is considered an assignment.  I will be checking that weekly.  Please check Skyward for updated grades as we are now officially working in 4th quarter. 

    I look forward to this new adventure together.  I am here for all of you.  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  This will pass and we will be back together in the classroom...
