Extra Help

  • In order for students to achieve success it is often important for them to put in extra time to go over assignments, gain clarity on challenging concepts, or make up work. My extra help time will be after school on Thursdays. Please make sure Mrs. Napoli knows you will be attending!

Collections Textbook Info

  • We will be using the 8th Grade Collections textbooks to study new concepts, read various texts, and focus on our writing process. We will study six units within those textbooks as well as discuss a whole class novel, work in book groups, and analyze poetry throughout the year. 

    The online login for our site is:

    * If a student is absent, per the handbook, they have THREE days to get the missed work in!

For nine years I taught 6th Grade ELA at MESMS, and I was lucky enough to make the switch to 8th Grade ELA three years ago. My hope is that students leave 8th Grade ELA feeling more confident about their reading and writing skills, and are ready to become successful high schoolers by the time the year is up. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year!
