Ms. Harrington's 7th Grade ELA

Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited that I get to be your ELA teacher this year. My name is Ms. Harrington and I am a recent graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University! I am originally from Windsor, Connecticut but moved here in the middle of 6th grade. I have a passion for teaching and working with kids and I really am looking forward to all the learning we get to do together this year!
 
First week of school, please bring a notebook or a binder of loose leaf paper. It can be spiral or composition, whatever works best. Pens, pencils, etc! Make sure your supplies are ready!
 
I look forward to a great year with you all. Please email me or call with any questions you may have. You may also sign up for REMIND so that I can send messages about tests, projects, and important announcements for your child. You can get the app or sign up on the website Remind 101. The class codes are as follows:
      2nd Period: bhela2
     3rd Period: bhela3
     4th Period: bhela4
     5th Period: bhela5
     7th Period: bhela7
     8th Period: bhela8
 
 
 
ATTENTION: On the class syllabus, there was an error. Level students will also be reading The Outsiders. Hold off on purchasing Island of the Blue Dolphins for now as we await a final decision on it. For my Pre-AP students, you have a different book list that is not on the front page so please make certain you look at those books. You can also find the books you need on the right hand side of this page. Thank you for your understanding!!
