MS.G's Class

Welcome to the 2014 - 2015 School Year!!!!

Hi everyone! This will be where you can pick up information from my class. Homework will be posted here. I will also post projects and things to remember. This will be helpful if you are absent or if I am absent. You can e-mail me at AGerrat@schools.nyc.gov Just so everyone knows, you can only log on to your class. You will only be able to use your given name, no nicknames, and if I do not recognize you, I will delete you from the site. FYI This is a Language Arts class...All final essays must be written in PEN or typed please...I will no longer accept things written in Pencil. Parents and students can use this site to keep up with the classes throughout the year..... In case anyone would like to order Scholastic Books online, here is the code for our classes. This will allow us to get the Bonus points so we can get more books. Now and again we may add things to a "wish list" (stuff we would love to have) ... Go to www.scholastic.com/bookclubs and use the code: HCKXL It a good way to order books and not have to worry about money getting lost on the way to school. Thanks parents!!!!
