I am so excited to start a new year with my Gateway students. This year, I will post our weekly class newsletters and any upcoming projects, writing assignments, or novels we are working on in class throughout the week.
Please join Remind so you can get important notifications about upcoming projects or events. It's also an excellent way to communicate with me.

All books counted for AR will need to be books 5.0 and above, unless approved by Mrs. Delatte. All books read in class and all LYRC books will count toward AR goals. For each 9 weeks, the students will need 25 AR Points (Fiction points: 8 minimum + Nonfiction points: 17 minimum) in order to meet their AR goal. I will check AR points weekly to make sure students are on track. Incentives will be offered periodically throughout each 9 weeks and the at the end of each 9 weeks.
*1st 9 Weeks will be modified: 5 nonfiction points + 15 fiction points= 20 total AR Points
