Welcome to Mrs. McQuade's homework site. Please see side menu bar for each English 8 and 9 .
Information on this website is to provide grade 8 and 9 students and their parents with the procedures, requirements, and strategies to be successful in English.
If you are late, wait quietly outside the door until Mrs. Mcquade invites you in. Then quietly move to your seat without disrupting others. Frequent lates will be dealt with in the appropriate manner.
You are ultimately responsible for your own success in this class. This means you are responsible for making up all (unexcused) missed work. Report to Mrs. McQuade the first day you return from your absence to make arrangements regarding missed tests, assignments, or quizzes.
Students are responsible for checking the website at home or in the library if they have been absent for any reason.
If you have any further concerns please email me:
Textbooks should be covered for the duration of the school year. If the cover falls off, please recover the book. Spot checks will be made for book covers. You are responsible for the text signed out to you.
