8th grade Language Arts teachers are excited to share an optional online opportunity for students to enhance their summer reading. Some students have already signed up through their LA classes. Please ask your child if they have signed up yet. If not, they need to go to Schoology. Then go to Courses, then drop down menu to join. The access code is QBDV6-3XNJS
Please encourage your child to check this course weekly throughout the summer to interact with their peers and upcoming 8th-grade teachers about their required summer reading books. Summer Reading requirements can be found at https://www.dublinschools.net/summerreading1.aspx

Mrs. Jerger, Mrs. Kurtz, and Mrs. Taylor are looking forward to working with your children in the 8th grade.
