Class Information


This year your panther will be part of my reading intensive lab! This class has been specially designed to meet the needs of your students on their journey toward further developing their essential reading skills.  

My expectation for your panther this year is that they are open to becoming both a reader and a leader in my classroom. Our focus for the year will be picking up specific reading strategies that have real-world applications. 

Este año, tu pantera formara parte de mi Laboratorio de lectura intensivo.  Esta clase ha sido especialmente diseñada para cumplir las necesidades de los estudiantes, mientras se preparan para mejorar sus habilidades de lectura.   

Las expectativas que tengo en su Pantera este año, es que tenga la mente abierta  a convertirse en un lector y líder en mi clase.  El enfoque que tendremos este año será aprender estrategias específicas que tienen aplicaciones en el mundo real.  

Class Schedule

Period 1 Departmental Planning
Period 2 Conference Period 
Period 3-8 8th Grade Reading Lab 




While your panthers are not typically assigned homework in Reading Lab, the expectation is that students are spending at least 30 minutes reading at home each night. Today's readers are tomorrow's leaders!
