Welcome to 8th Grade ELA! I'm Ms. Ricks and this is my first year teaching. I'm looking forward to this new year. A few reminders that in my class students are expected to: 

  • Use respectful language at all times
  • Be respectful to others and of others at all times
  • Begin bellwork promptly after entering the classroom
  • Be prepared with materials including pencil, paper, and Chromebook
  • Wait for me to call on them before speaking in class 
  • Keep their phones put away
  • And remember to not throw anything in my classroom
