Welcome to Glastenbury English! I am excited to begin the new school year with each of you. To be prepared for class, you will need pencils, eraser, a blue or black ink pen, an independent reading book, agenda book, the chromebook and bag (these last two supplied by the school). It will also help to build your organizational skills to have a two-pocket folder for work 'to do' and to 'turn in.'
Strive to do your best every day. Keep up with your class work and homework. Check the Daily Agenda and your grades for any missing assignments and for accuracy on Infinite Campus. Talk with any of us on the team if you have questions. See assignment details by clicking on them (the blue link) and get in any missing work if you miss class. It is your responsibility to find out what work you will miss during an anticipated absence. Remember, your teachers are here to help you!
