Welcome to Ms. McDowell’s 8th Grade Class Page!                                                               September 8th, 2021

Hello Parents and Students! 

Welcome to a new school year! September 2021-2022!

My name is T. McDowell. I am the 8th grade teacher, of class MS 2, here at the Martin Luther King Academy!

In the near future, if needed, I will be using Remind as a way of keeping in touch with everyone.

In preparation for this school year, you should periodically check out our class page here on the MLKA website as well as check our Clever class page. If our class ever has to be online again in the future, we will be mainly using Microsoft Teams. Each section is represented with the name of each class that you have; English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, Art and Gym. Most academic online assignments are posted on Castle Learning, Nearpod and NEWS ELA, which are all in Clever. Various websites such as Quizzes and Brainpop have been favorites of many students in order to strengthen basic math skills.

Students supply list for the September 2021-June 2022 school year is as follows:

**Two composition writing books for Math class and English Language Arts class. (a total of 4) 

**Students should also have 2 folders for each of the 4 content subject areas. (a total of 8)

**writing utensils: a pack of pencils (12), 2 pens

**A personal water bottle...preferably clear in color!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at

Thank you

 T. McDowell
