Reading will be a constant occurrence in class. We will read, share books, examine different types, cultures and topics through the pages of books. My hope is every student will find one #booklove this year.

Help me help others! Recommend books. Give book talks. Read aloud exciting passages. Expose your friends to great #booklove!

Classroom Nuts & Bolts

Grades --

Grades will be updated weekly. Please check grades regularly on Skyward. Contact me with any questions you might have.

Absent Work --

If you are absent, you are responsible for completing your make-up work. If you were in class when the work was assigned, it is due the day your return. If not, you have three days to complete it. Please complete it as soon as possible to maintain classroom progress.

All make-up work will be placed in your classes absent folder with your name written on it. You are responsible for collecting and completing all missing assignments. It is your responsibility to ask a classmate or me for help on making up any interactive notebook assignments, and/or to meet with me to make up any tests, quizzes or papers.

If you know you're going to be absent beforehand, please ask me for your make-up work before the absence. This can be done in person or by email.

Assignment Formatting

Any graded assignment must be completed in blue or black ink. You can print or write in cursive as long as it is legible. Your name must be written in cursive.

All typed assignments may not be in any font size larger than 14 pt. Your name, Block number and date must be present.


Students should read 20-30 minutes a day.

No reading logs will be collected, but I will conference with you on a regular basis. I will work with you to find books that are enjoyable and suit your interests.

Most work will be able to be completed in class if students use their time wisely. Students have IPFT time as well to complete assignments.

Homework not completed, will result in time spent with me during IPFT or after school.

Late points may be lost on assignments.

Electronic Devices

We will use Chromebooks every day if possible! Please bring them to school charged. Points will be lost if dead Chromebooks are a chronic issue.

Personal devices should not be out during class, unless otherwise instructed by me with permission.

  • First offense: student will turn the phone into me until the end of the class.
  • Second offense: student will turn the phone into me until the end of the day.
  • Third offense: phone will be turned into the office and will be handled officially.
