Welcome to 7th Grade English!
Mrs. Deanna Fields
Sign up for Remind!
Parents AND students should both join REMIND for information and school/class reminders. I will use this as frequently as I can instead of lots of email. It's quicker and easier to read a text for something simple.
Periods: 1, 4, 7, & 8
Period 5 (Enhanced English)
Period 6 (Advisory)
Where to find me:
Our classroom is located at the end of the 7th grade hallway near the exit door and stairway, room B107. Please be on time and ready to work. There is much to accomplish this year!
If you need me, please use my EMAIL (firstname.lastname@example.org)! I'm not always near a phone and might not see a phone message as quickly.
Wednesday afternoons until 4:00.

Supplies Needed for Our Class:
2 composition books (1 per semester)
Sharpened pencils with erasers
Markers/Colored pens are always encouraged in my room! We take fun notes, but essays will be written in pencil.
...but don't freak out about the Writing! We will work on this together! You WILL grow as a writer and student this year! My goal is to take you up at least ONE full level as a writer. This will take hard work, but YOU can do it! You should be reading books, watching the news, perusing the newspaper, and filling your head with information that will generate ideas for your writing.
Big fat clue: The more you read...the better you will write.
Remember what my hero, Chicken Little, says...
Every day is a new day to begin again! We will take this class ONE day at a time! YOU are important to ME and I believe that you should bring what you have because EVERYONE has something to give!
I don't make a habit of assigning homework, BUT, if there is something unfinished from class you may be asked to complete it at home. Bottom line: Work hard in class and homework will be infrequent! We will have a MONTHLY homework assignment, Panther Proficiency, that will be completed through the Google Classroom. These are due at the end of the month and there will be an assessment based on the skills targeted.
Phone: 972-347-7542 (But in all honesty, an email will be answered more quickly!)
