Welcome to Room 208

Welcome back and I hope everyone had a great summer.

     My name is Jennie Harris and I will be the substitute teacher for Mrs. Gordon for the next few weeks. I will follow her classroom procedures and routines as best as possible so the students will have an easy transition when Mrs. Gordon returns.

     Lessons will be on Google classroom, so if your child is absent for either a short or extended period of time, they should continue to check Google Classroom. During the school year, your child needs to check all four of their teacher's Google Classroom pages for information relating to specific subjects.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me via

 Grade Weights:
         Tests/ Papers  40%
     Classwork/ Projects   25%
Quizzes 15%
     Homework 10%
     Participation 10%

**any late work is deducted 10% for each day late. Students that are absent are still expected to check Google Classroom and submit required work. However, for any extenuating circumstances, please reach out so that we can best accommodate your student and are aware of the situation.**

Throughout the year, students will develop writing styles at a mastery level. Students will write routinely and with rigor. They will be expected to write many different genres of writing such as: expository, narrative, persuasive, and descriptive. MLA style will be taught and used for all writing assignments. Students will be expected to complete a major writing assignment every month.
