Welcome students and parents to our 2020-21 school year! Let's get ready to learn!
English Language Arts
Wow, 2020 has been an extremely challenging year so far. I know we all wanted to start this school year in person, but unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are forced to continue with remote learning. Even though remote learning offers many challenges, I know you are capable of meeting those challenges head on. My expectations will remain high for you, and I promise to work hard to meet your expectations for me. I honestly hope things change soon, and we can all meet in person. Until then, let's make the most of our time together and do this...
Our ability to communicate is what makes humans special. English Language Arts is at the core of that concept. So whether you are enjoying a classic novel, posting comments on Instagram, or learning about your new objective on Call of Duty, you are using language skills! Together this year, we will also learn some skills needed to be successful in high school and life. Trust me when I say you will be a better reader, writer, and student when you finish this school year. Do not be afraid to take risks and make mistakes, for that is what learning is all about! I can't wait to experience all our journey has to offer.
I expect the 2020-21 school year to be busy, yet satisfying. Language Arts students will have an opportunity to improve their language and communication skills by using an online, interactive program called Study Sync. Students will spend their time in class reading fiction and nonfiction texts, while also practicing various types of writing. I'll be honest, you are going to work hard, and at times it may be challenging. But, I will be there with you every step of the way. We will work together to make you the best possible student you can be! Again, let's do this!
During our time away from school, if parents or students have questions or concerns they can email me, but also join our class on the “remind.com” app, and I’ll respond ASAP.
