Dear Students,

Welcome to Online learning! My hope is that by the end of this course you have a new appreciation for Language Arts and will continue your education in the subject. 

The course will be conducted in Teams and everything for your success will be found there. Once the course starts you will be able to login to Teams with your school email. 

Let me start by telling you what Online learning is going to look like. There will be 90 minutes of instruction/student activity per week Every Tuesday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for Language Arts starting on April 21. I have divided this instructional time into two courses in Teams. 

Language Arts 8 Extended will meet from 12 pm to 12:30 pm
Language Arts 8 will meet from 12:30 pm-1:00 pm

An online course is much like a face-to-face course, it takes time and commitment from you. I expect you to spend at least 30 minutes per week working on the assigned material, be on time, check your email and Teams weekly for updates on assignments and the course. While participation is optional, I have worked to make reading and writing all enjoyable. Each week's material will be made available Monday morning. 

If you find yourself having trouble with course content, please contact me. My goal is to respond to messages within 24 hours between 8 am to 3pm, Monday through Friday.  

I look forward to working with you!

Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts!

During these challenging times, please make the health and safety of your family a priority. I understand the potential impacts of school closure to your education. It’s my top priority to provide you with helpful resources through these uncertain times. Use Clever Portal to access Language Arts applications to practice the standards we have covered (see the quick links below). These are review materials only and enrichment activities for practice are optional. Due to the school closure, I will not be assigning new assignments. 

You can contact for questions about any retake work or missing assignments. I’m also here for you if you just need some helpful insights regarding some of the online learning tools. If needed, I will reach out to you via email. 

Take Care,
