Class Description:  4/13 This description is still accurate.

In Eighth Grade Language Arts, students learn English grammar, writing, and reading (nonfiction as well as fiction) in preparation for passing SOL exams later in the year and successfully transitioning to high school. Students are assessed on objectives and skills at least once every week or every other week, depending on how long it takes students to master the skill and other scheduling constraints.  Extra help is available through e-mail and various websites that will be posted.  

Class Schedule: 

April 13

Greetings students and welcome back to Charlton and Abston's  Virtual Hampton.

(1)  SCHEDULE:  You may have seen that the Principal has posted a revised schedule for the coming weeks. That schedule calls for English Language Arts instruction on Mondays (only) from 8:30 to 10:00. We will try to get together at that time starting next Monday, 20th. More specific instructions will be sent to you soon.

(2)  The schedule also calls for ELA Office Hours on Wednesdays from 12:00 to 1:30. If you or your parents would like to ask me (Ms. Charlton or Ms. Abston) a question about your work or grades or anything else, we can get in touch during that time. Please send me an e-mail if you’d like us to be in contact during that time, and we can figure out the best way.

(3) 3rd QUARTER GRADES:  You will receive a report card and grade as usual for 3rd Quarter. The Grade Book in The Hub is up to date for ELA including all your work up until our last day in school (March 13), and that is the grade that you will receive unless you turn in any additional past due work.

PWCS and HMS have extended 3rd Quarter until April 24, so you can turn in past due work (any of the NRI or Study Island) up until next Wednesday April 22nd. I strongly suggest that you look at your grades in The Hub and see if you have turned in your computer work, you probably have a decent grade for the quarter. If not, you will see a “0” for that assignment which will have a very negative effect on your final grade. You should try to be sure that you submit that assignment before April 22nd for credit. You may e-mail your scores to me.

(4)  RE-TEST: If you wish to re-take the Subject-Verb Agreement re-test, contact me THIS WEEK by e-mail and we can arrange for you to take it THIS WEEK. You must contact me first to arrange it. If you already did OK on that test, I do NOT encourage you to re-take it. Only re-take it if you did poorly. You can review your grade in The Hub.

That’s all for now; let me know if you have questions about this.
Please know that I miss you and sending up prayer for your family.

Office Hours:
Daily from 12-1:30.  These office hours will begin via e-mail.  There may be a different forum in the future.
