Dear Student,


      Welcome to another school year!  We hope you have enjoyed your summer because it’s time to get back to work.  This class requires diligent work and attention throughout the year.  We concentrate on the elements of the writing process, grammar, mechanics and spelling.


Required Materials:

**        2 composition notebooks

**      ball point pens in three colors: blue, black and red

**        box of Kleenex

**       plenty of notebook paper

**       index cards



 During the school year, other materials may be necessary when working on special projects.  Note cards, markers, map colors and poster boards are just some of the extra materials that may be requested from the student.  Students will be given sufficient notice to attain the materials.


Grading Policy:

      Grading will be done on a 60% and 40% scale.

                   60% = tests, special projects, oral presentations, essays

                  40% = daily work, homework, quizzes, DOLS, class participation




       See the Student Handbook regarding attendance policy.  Please keep in mind that excessive absences may result in a lower grade due to missed lectures and instructions.




Makeup Work:

       It is the student’s responsibility to ask for any makeup work due to an absence.  Makeup work requests can be made before school, during lunch or after school, NOT DURING CLASS.  Sufficient time to make up the work will be given in accordance to the number of days a student was absent.  If the student is absent on a known test day, then the student will be required to take the test on the day the student returns.
