English Department

Welcome to the English Department! As part of the English curriculum, students participate in reading, writing, speaking, and expounding on Language Arts principles. Readings include newspapers, novels, textbooks, and selected works.

We assess reading through various means, and we assess writing using the Six Traits method. We give spelling and vocabulary lists throughout the week utilizing the Word of the Day curriculum. Our students independently read novels throughout the semester. We teach grammar as a supplement to the classroom reading and writing.

To get the most out of their experience, students must appear on time with proper materials and be prepared to learn. All students are responsible for reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary assignments on the day due. We will not permit tardy students to enter class, and we don’t give bathroom passes out during the first or last fifteen minutes of class.
