Welcome to Hogwarts!
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted into Hogwarts School of Wizardry! This year we have a lot to learn, so it is important that you are prepared and focused each day in class, but we also plan on having an abundance of fun. Your ELA class will cover several types of literature, which will include short stories, novels, nonfiction texts, and poetry. We will begin the quarter learning about the magic behind incredible narratives, and continue later on with research papers and argument pieces. Our goal this year is to keep learning and growing as individuals, and, of course, to always try our best.
