Welcome to 7th Grade Language Arts!

  • August 14, 2019

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to 7th grade language arts! I am looking forward to meeting you at Back to School Night on August 21nd.  I am here to assist every student in being successful.

    Suggested Supplies

    11/2 amd 2 inch binder with five tab dividers – This binder can stay in class and be used as a writing-in-progress organizer.

    3x5 note cards – We will be doing an intensive study of Greek and Latin Roots and we will be making flash cards to be used at home and in class.

    Writing Utensils – highlighter set of five (pink, blue, orange, green, and yellow), pencils, blue and black ink pens


    This year Study Sync by Mc Graw Hill. You stuent wil have a copy of the book as well as access to an online version at all times.


    In this class the grades will be based on the following weighted categories.

                10% Speaking and Listening

                30% Language

                30% Reading

                30% Writing


    Homework Pass

    One homework pass for quarter one will be provided. I know that life happens and there are times that homework cannot be the first priority. The pass can be used the following ways:

    1.      To replace a homework or class work assignment

    2.      To delay a project or test by one day

    The pass must be turned in the day the assignment is due and be signed by a parent. If the homework pass is not used at the end of the quarter it can be used to fill a missing classwork or homework assignment. If there are no missing assignments it can be used for rounding privileges.


    Make up materials are available in a lime green crate in the front of the room. It is your student’s responsibility to pick up and turn in make-up work. Extra help and make-up tests are given at lunch on Tuesday or by appointment. If there is a planned extended absence, please give me at least a two weeks prior notice so I can plan for your student.


    You can contact me at ehawkins@ruesd.net   or 588-6030. I promise to get back to you in 24 hours or less. Thank you ahead of time for your support. I am looking forwrd to a great year.


     Mrs. Hawkins
