Hello Oaklea 2020/21 8th Graders!

Welcome to the start of your 8th-grade year! I am Ms. Holman, one of your English teachers for the year. I am joined this year by Ms. Stroup; she's a student-teacher. We will be navigating and developing your tools together in reading and writing over the next eight months. The year is kicking off in Comprehensive Distance Learning, CDL. This means you'll not only be mastering your language use, you'll be boosting your technology skills too! I am really looking forward to navigating the year with you all.
Please make sure you are using CHROME as your internet browser AND that you're logged into your school account so you can receive the invitation to join our live class. We are working hard to make this as easy for you as possible. 
You can reach out to me via email ( any time you have a question or need assistance; that is what I'm here for.
