    Dear Eighth-Graders,


    Please join me for an exciting opportunity to learn this school year! Let’s celebrate by delving back into the academic world of reading and writing, of growing as critical thinkers and effective communicators. Our focus in 8th-grade ELA is on literacy: honing reading development, integrating all parts of the writing process, improving language usage, and expanding vocabulary knowledge. Whether you call yourself an avid, closeted, or reluctant writer and reader, we are in for quite an adventure in our “beehive” as we take risks in the written word together. I eagerly look forward to the time and experiences we will share as we celebrate that each day is a chance to learn something new. Come see what all the “buzz” is about!
