Mrs. Rosaleen DeGregorio
8th Grade Homeroom 8B
5th-8th Grade English Language Arts & Literature
Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 academic school year! My name is Mrs. DeGregorio and I will be your English/Language Arts teacher and homeroom teacher for class 8B. As an alumna of OLPH, I am proud to continue the tradition of giving students a well-rounded education and the tools they'll need as they prepare for high school. I know things will be different upon returning to school, but if we work as a team, it will be a safe and exciting one.

GENERAL ASSIGNMENT REMINDERS:
- All assignments must have a full heading (including # in upper righthand corner); script handwriting preferred; and in blue or black pen.
- When writing paragraphs, remember to indent every paragraph (usually the length of half your thumb). Paragraphs have AT LEAST 5 complete sentences / maximum of 7 or 8 sentences. DO NOT skip lines in between paragraphs. All sentences must be complete thoughts, meaning there is ALWAYS a subject + verb + predicate.
- Proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, punctuation and sentence structure count.
- If you make a spelling mistake, cross it out with a single line - no scribbling. All writing must be neat and legible.
- NO plagiarizing (copying other people's words and/or ideas without credit).
