Welcome to Ms. Sandefur's Webpage
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am very excited to meet my students in Language Arts 7 and 8. I know we are going to have a fun and enriching year. If you have any questions or concerns about our class this year, please do not hesitate to contact me. You will find my e-mail address and classroom phone number below. Also, this website will be updated weekly and will contain loads of important information. Feel free to click around and visit often.
In Language Arts we practice our reading, writing, presenting, and critical thinking skills. We will work on vocabulary and grammar, read from a variety of genres, and write in a variety of formats including journaling, constructive response and composing essays. Students will also practice technology skills by using an online learning tool called Canvas, which may be used in other classes as well. And we will use several Google Apps on the students' Chromebooks, which students should bring to class every day.
Parents, if you don't already have a username and password, click on the "Create Account" tab (next to the "Sign In" tab). Once you are logged in, anything that appears underlined when you hover your mouse pointer over it is a clickable link in PowerSchool. For example, if you click on an assignment name, it will take you to a description of the assignment. Please contact me or the front office if you find you are having trouble with PowerSchool at home. It is an important communication tool between teachers, students, and parents, so we want to make sure it is working for you!
Links to further information can be found on the left side of this page. See you soon in Rm. 228!
