    Welcome to our website!

    On this website, you and your child will find a wealth of information about their Language Arts and/or Read180 class.  You and your child can access homework and classwork assignments, the daily agenda, important announcements and more.  

    Below I've listed the links that can be found on this site along with a brief description of the information found on that link.

    • Daily Agenda: On this link you will find the daily agenda organized by date (the most recent will be at the top).  The activities, assignments, do nows, and homework are listed here.  If you are absent or have forgotten what was covered in class, this link will provide you with the information needed so you can remain up to date.
    • Class Downloads: This link will allow you to access all handouts and assignments (if they are Word documents) that were distributed in class. This is a great resource to utilize if you've misplaced and of the handouts needed for class.  The handouts are listed according to the date they were uploaded.  The most recent handouts will be found at the bottom of the list.
    Please make every use of this website as it allows you and your child to remain informed about all that is going on in Language Arts.  It is an excellent resource to utilize when a student is absent, has lost or forgotten materials, and for parents to have "a set of eyes" for what their child is learning in class.  

    For a copy of our classroom syllabus, grading policy, supply list, and much more, please visit the "Classroom Resources" tab. Be mindful of the CLASS your student is currently enrolled in (Read180 OR Language Arts) when looking at information. 

    If you and/or your child have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at
