PARENTS:  To give feedback, click here:

All assignments will be placed in the Google classroom for each block.


Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 school year!  In this class, you may expect to write frequently and copiously; to read voraciously while exhibiting comprehension; and to demonstrate mastery of English grammar.  Each grading period, you may expect to read source materials (books, magazine articles, newspaper articles) outside the classroom to expand your vocabulary and to improve your reading comprehension.  If you work with purpose in this class, you will earn good grades, a better understanding of the world around you, and the respect and gratitude of your teachers.

Class Materials

Each class, you will be expected to bring the following materials:

  • A one-inch binder
  • Standard ruled loose-leaf paper
  • Standard black or dark-blue pens

Classroom Guidelines

In order for a classroom to run smoothly, adherence to basic rules and procedures is necessary.  Below are a few standards that will help you receive fair treatment, keep you organized, and make our classroom a place where you can learn and feel secure.  When you do your best as a student, I can do my best as your teacher.    RULES:  How you are expected to behave 1.    Please be honest — lying, cheating, and plagiarism will not be tolerated.

2.    Please be courteous, respectful, and attentive to me and to your peers.

3.    Please speak in an appropriate manner; I will not permit blasphemy, vulgarity, or offensive slang.

4. If you are not in your seat when the bell rings, you are tardy.

CONSEQUENCES:  How misbehavior will be handled    If a student chooses to misbehave, it is important that he or she knows the consequences.  The steps that I may take for general discipline concerns are as follows:

First offense: I will provide a verbal reminder of the appropriate, expected behavior.

Second offense: The student will sign a written statement on a referral to document the offense. Additionally, I will communicate with the student’s parents.

Third offense: I will issue a referral, which will be sent to the office. •There may be discipline issues that require bypassing one or more of the above steps.  More specific discipline procedures are outlined in the Suffolk Public Schools Student Handbook.

REWARDS:  How positive behavior will benefit you It has been said that “living right is its own reward,” and this is definitely true.  I have noted below a few of the other rewards for responsible behavior and positive contributions in the classroom.

  1. Personal satisfaction
  2. Academic success
  3. Opportunity to earn extra credit points
  4. Inclusion in student recognition programs
  5. Positive written recommendations for jobs, colleges, and scholarships
