I am so excited to get to know each and every one of you over the course of this year!I am dedicated, determined, and motivated to make this year great!
The first novel we will read is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.
Please obtain a copy of this novel by the second week of school.
This book can be purchased online through Amazon, Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, and ranges from 5.00$ - 10.00$ dollars.
The Maricopa Public Library District's North Valley Branch (which is located on the campus at Boulder Creek High School) is a great resource,
not only for the required readings, but also for leisure! Please contact the library with any questions.
I will also attach a pdf version of The Outsiders on Canvas, however having a personal copy is always great for reading, annotations, etc.
*Please contact me if you are unable to obtain a copy of The Outsiders *
Classroom Library: This library is located in our classroom, and is available to all my students through a simple check-in, check-out process.
This library contains books of all genres, all topics, and was created for students to find something they love, something that resonates within
them, something that "speaks" to them or that they can relate to. I am so proud of the class of 2022 and how much they embraced reading
for leisure and fun, and I look forward to cultivating an environment within this class of 8th graders as well. This library has been created
through generous donations, as well as my own personal funds.
If you feel led to donate to our classroom library, please check out this amazon wish list.
We will be using the district-provided canvas app throughout the school year. Canvas will be updated on a daily basis and will contain
weekly schedules, assignments, announcements, etc. Please refer to canvas frequently, and use it as your "go to" tool for success in class.
Parents, please utilize powerschools and canvas as tools to monitor your students' success, and as always, please email me with any
questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org
