8th GRADE LANGUAGE ARTS

Parents and Students:  Please remember that it would be impossible for this website to include everything in which students are responsible for in my class.  Things come up which cause deviations in the best laid plans.  Please remember that it is ultimately the students responsibility to pay attention in class each and every day for additions or deletions to the content on this website.

Our Google Classroom

 

Google Classroom 

 

My 8th grade Language Arts classes will be full-time Google Classrooms this school year. Students will use chromebooks in my class everyday with very few exceptions. All of their work, assignments, and materials can be accessed via Google Classroom. Through Google Apps each student will also have access to a secure Google Drive, Gmail account, and Google Calendar. Follow the directions below to see our digital classroom.

  1. Go to https://classroom.google.com from any computer or device

  2. Student Login : studentnumber@ecsd.me (example 143583@ecsd.me)

  3. Students will then be directed to a district authentication page. Their username is their 6 digit student number. You will have to get the password from your child, as I do not have access to their passwords.

**Parents and students can also download the Google Classroom App from the Apple Play Store or Google Play Store.**
