Mr. Justis' Class

Subject: 
Language & Literature

Welcome to 8th grade Language and Literature! 

In addition to the Core Webpage, I have some other useful links for you below:

Click HERE for my Bitmoji Classroom (A fun extra feature filled with useful resources and information.  This is NOT where lessons and content will be shared for required coursework.  Please visit our Schoology course for that!)

 Below are a couple videos on how to access your Schoology courses

Last but not least:  Let's all be sure to take care of ourselves.  Make sure you are getting up and being active throughout the day, so your body doesn't cramp up.  Take some time to unplug and create something with your hands (draw something, read from your independant reading novel, make some music, build something, cook something new and different, or just write in a paper journal with a pencil).  Most importantly, exercise patience with people, especially yourself.  Mistakes are going to get made, and that's okay, so long as we don't give up!  Starting off this year remotely will be a challenge for us all, but we will get through it together!

I look forward to getting to know you all on this strange new journey! 

Please contact me with any questions.

Thank you!

Mr. Justis
