Ms. Sujo


Welcome Parents/Students:

My name is Violeta Sujo and I am a seventh  grade teacher  at Nightingale M.S. This year, like all the previous years, we  will have a wonderful time filled  with  learning.  In order  to  progress in  English we all  have  a  lot  of  work  to  do.  This  syllabus will help you understand what we will be working  on  in class every day, and will show you what to do to pass.  Students  will be  graded on  four aspects of their  work  in  this  class. The textbook we'll be using to achieve our goals is HIGH  POINT and the English Language Arts textbook will be HATCHET. We will also be  reading THE BOXCAR CHILDREN.  Some of the grade will come from the  HIGH POINT  assignment.  Great  focus is  placed on oral communication, reading, analyzing, and the writing process.  Oral communication will be stressed in group discussion, individual speeches, and group presentations.  Work in grammar will be  closely  tied to writing.  The students  will recognize  theme, and recurring  theme, and will learn Latin and Greek  roots their meanings and their English derivatives.

In order to succeed we  need to have rules, and follow them.  Ms. Sujo's RULES

                                     1. Follow directions

                                     2.Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.

                                                   3. No teasing or cussing.

                                    4. Come prepared (supplies, ready to learn) .

                                                  5. All school rules  apply.

Of course we will have negative consequences like after school and lunch detention,  and positive consequences like tickets for a prize, positive calls home, free time, praise, etc.
