Welcome to the CHSN English Department Website

Sticky Notes is Friday, March 20. Sticky Notes is a day of creative writing workshops taught by teachers, administrators, published authors, and students! To download the application, click HERE. 


Every student at Clarkstown North, as well as incoming ninth graders, must read a minimum of two books over the summer. Students must choose two books from the appropriate grade level list and either complete an assignment over the summer or once they return to class. Lists and assignments are available here.  Please contact Mrs. Czajkowski, kczajkowski@ccsd.edu, if you have any questions. 


Change in policy regarding Research Papers:

As of January 1, 2013, the English Department will no longer be penalizing students with automatic course failures in the absence of a formal research paper. Students will still be assigned research papers, but the earned grades for the papers will be factored into each student's quarter and semester grades.  
Be sure to check out our Contests and Publishing Opportunities link for new contests and ways to get your writing published!
