    Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year! 
    Dear Parents and/or Guardians and Students,

    Welcome to English!  I am so happy to welcome you to my classroom--and Colony High School!  Go KNIGHTS!!    
    I strongly believe in the power of communication and openly welcome input and suggestions from you at any time.  Feel free to use the handy e-mail link above to keep in touch with me throughout the year.  It's usually the fastest way to reach me.  Please make yourself acquainted with our Google Classroom page for updates and assignments.  The Google Classroom is where I post assignments and communication.  Please join us as a parent there to be in the loop on what is happening! 
    Also, please check IPARENT/ISTUDENT to monitor progress weekly throughout the semester.  I update my grades as often as possible to keep you aware of your student's progress.  Download the GOOGLE Classroom App to your phone to get updates and reminders on due dates!

    My Grading Policy
    Total Points will reflect the weight of a given assignment;  I do not weight by category.  Students accumulate total points from daily work, projects, homework, writing assignments, quizzes, and tests.
