Summer Information

Hello and welcome!

We ask that our incoming 8th graders read a minimum of three books over the summer and complete literature logs for each of them. 
The books you choose are entirely up to you, though of course I would like to see texts that are appropriate for your age and skill level.

This link will take you to a printable copy of the literature log. You may also type your responses based on the same format. 

Please bookmark this blog! This blog will have every homework assignment and due date I share with you in class. It is a great resource for students and parents to keep an eye on. 

Below is a suggested supply list for 8th grade ELA:

3-hole punch paper - white lined
1 2” binder
5 divider tabs
Pencils
Eraser caps
Highlighter
Post-it notes
Index cards
Tissues and table wipes also appreciated!

Email me at Connelly.Cornelia@JamestownSchools.org with any other questions. I will be checking my email periodically throughout the summer.

Thursday, June 15th

Due ASAP! 
8th Grade letters to yourself are due as soon as possible! 
If you did not hand one in today, please ensure you get me your letter before the end of the school year, or you might not receive one when you graduate from high school. 

Reminder: If you are unlikely to have the same address in four years, consider to whom you could send your letter to be forwarded. Relatives and close family friends are your best bet!
