Mrs. Kramer's

6th Grade English

Welcome to English 6 at Hines Middle School! I am excited to have you in class this year. This class will be filled with exploring new worlds through close reading and writing.

Sign-up for Remind: Remind is a one-way messaging system that allows me to text/e-mail important reminders and announcements to parents and students. Since it is one-way, I am the only one who can send messages on it. I will not send reminders for everything. I can help, but ultimately it is your responsibility to keep track of assignments and due dates using your agenda. This is a safe and secure notification system used for English class only. You can join the class’s Remind two ways.

1. Text @Kramerhms to the number 81010. (standard messaging rates apply)

2. Send me an e-mail that you would like to join, and I will add you.

Materials Required: You are to come to class every day with your English binder, a book to read, pencils, paper, highlighter, and agenda.

English Binder: You will keep an English binder that you must bring to class everyday, as most of your work will be kept in it. It is also a valuable source for reviewing and studying for exams.

Agenda: Every student must have an agenda. They cost is $3.00 and you may purchase them in the office. The agenda is an important resource. You will use it to record homework and reminders, as well as a hall pass. No agenda = no pass.

Textbooks : Text books are kept in the classroom at all times. Students are unable to take one home to complete work. If a you are absent, you can make up the missed work at Spartan Second Chance, or after school (Tuesdays and Thursdays).

Google Classroom: This year we will be utilizing Google Classroom for many assignments. If you have internet access and an electronic device at home, you can easily makeup online missing work by accessing Google Classroom at at home.
