If you have a choice between being right and being kind, choose kind." -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer 

"But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. (Titus 3:4-5a)

  OFFICIAL TUTORING DAY: Thursdays 2:15-2:45 

TO ALL PARENTS: The No Red Ink grammar assignments that are given weekly for homework MUST be completed every Friday by 3pm. The program itself has set it so that no late assignments can be submitted. It is the one homework assignment that CANNOT be made up because of the way the program has been set up. Thank you for understanding the importance of students submitting their homework assignments on time. 

NewsELA (www.newsela.com) Class Codes are as follows:

8th Grade: ZAFQ8N

 You can access Google Classroom using the following codes:

TARDY POLICY: When an assignment is handed in tardy, it automatically receives a 10% reduction of the total score as per the amount of days/weeks tardy. For example, if an assignment is worth 10 points and is submitted a day to a week late, it will automatically be graded at a 9/10 points as the highest possible score. If an assignment is worth 100 points and is submitted a day to a week late, it will automatically be graded at 90/100 points as the highest possible score.

REMINDER: All homework assignments below a 70% grade can be made up by students so long as they attach the original homework assignment to the redone assignment (unless otherwise told not to by me).
