Grade 8 News

Dear Parents/Guardians

The staff at St. Ambrose welcomes your child back for another year of great scholastic achievements. I would like to personally welcome all students to my grade 8 class and I look forward to getting the opportunity to teach each of them in the coming year. In order to keep you up to date, monthly newsletters will outline any important upcoming events and dates. I will also be sending out information in the coming days which will outline a new program which will allow you to receive reminders about important dates and tests/assignments. Please keep a watch for more information coming home.

Homework Management

Your child will need the following supplies this year:

  • markers
  • Pencil Crayons
  • pencils, blue pens, red pen
  • eraser
  • ruler
  • calculator
  • glue stick
  • Binder with dividers
  • Gym clothes Mon/Wed/Fri


Reminders to Parents


Homework is generally work that students have not completed during the day at school. Except for rare occasions, students in Grade 8 should have approximately 80 minutes of homework every night. Students can practice necessary skills such as multiplication tables as well as reading each night. Students are encouraged to review new information in content subjects such as Science or History nightly. If students are absent, they are responsible for getting caught up when returning to class.
