Welcome to Seventh Grade English Language Arts

Thank you students and parents for being so calm and positive during these difficult times in our world.  I will continue to use the Teacher web-page and Microsoft Teams to communicate with students on their engaged learning during their 7th grade year.  In addition, the district has put together meaningful websites for students to utilize while they are home and you can find them under the tab "Student Engagement Websites".
