Welcome to 8th grade LA and English Honors I !
Hello students! I first want to say that I miss you all and I hope that you and your families are well. I know this switch to online learning is going to challenge us at the beginning, but I am confident that we will make it work.
We will be completing assignments using Google Classroom, all instructions and classcodes will be posted on this website under your course tab (English I or LA). Make sure to check Google Classroom daily for your assignments as grades will still be put into Skyward for the 4th quarter.
If you or your parents have any questions please contact me through email at email@example.com. I will not have "office hours" as my email is directly connected to my phone, so I will respond to your email within an hour during our normal school time (9:30-4:00).
Directions for the weeks ahead:
1. Starting Wednesday, April 1st, you must login to Google Classroom once a day (by 3 pm, please) to answer the "bellwork" question. This is how attendance will be taken.
2. This week I will post your daily assignments on Wednesday and they will be due Monday of next week. Starting next Monday, I will post assignments for the week on Monday and they will be due the following Monday. You can choose to do the assignments daily, as posted, or you can complete them all at the same time, it is completely up to you.
3. Tuesdays I will be grading assignments and putting scores into Skyward, so it is important for you to get them in on the Monday deadlines.
Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.). These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms. If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.
