Welcome Back Coogs!

I am Mrs. Istre, your 8th grade ELA teacher.  I hope you've all had a great summer vacation and are as excited as I am to get the school year rolling.  For those of you who had me last year, it thrills me to have the opportunity to follow you through the rest of your academic time here at the junior high level.  To all of my students, new and familiar, I can only say, let's plan on having an awesome year in ELA.  

It is my mission for you to become better decision-makers in the real world as well as in the classroom.  I want you to feel the freedom to create, think, explore and discover new possibilities in a safe environment. It is my hope that after being in my class this year, you will take responsibility for your own learning and carry that sense of ownership with you to the next level.  

Parents, I have included the scope and sequence for the year. Should you need to contact me via phone or in person, my conference period is listed below.

Conference Period:  4th Period / 10:03-10:52
I would like to encourage all parents and students to subscribe to my webpage as I will be sharing information regarding important updates and reminders about tests, portfolio pieces and project deadlines. Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns.
Again, Welcome Back!
