Dear Future 2019-20 Students, 
If you are anything like I was as a student, you are creeping on all of your future teacher's websites trying to figure them out and see what you will need for the start of the year. While I do not have too much specific information posted on my website, you can find the syllabus under English 9. You can review this to get a better idea about what we will be doing throughout the school year.
In previous years, I used the app Remind 101 to send home updates on class activities, test reminders, and other miscellaneous events. This year I will be using an Instagram account to do this since the majority of you have and use this app daily. Please check the syllabus, follow the account, and encourage your guardians to do the same. (I do NOT follow back.) This will help you stay organized and get fun reminders about class, especially once the school year begins.
Below is a short list of supplies you can get before school begins to help you be successful in class. 
1. Pencils/pens
2. A Writer's Notebook - get something that reflects your personality!
3. A binder or a folder to help you stay organized 
Feel free to reach out to me this summer if you do have any questions or simply want to say hello! I cannot wait to meet you on August 21. It's going to be a great year!  
Mrs. Donley :)
