Welcome to 8th Grade!  Please click on the class below which applies to you.  There you will find upcoming and past assignments.
Use the green-shaded box to find agendas (through the "Calendar" section), "Links" (to do online homework), "Journals" (for each class), and "Handouts" (including copies of texts, handouts, and directions).  You can also find info from the "Handouts" section in the "class" sections mentioned above.  These will be included in the date the assignment is/was due.


"We shall not cease from exploration.
 And the end of all our exploring
 Will be to arrive where we started,
 And know the place for the first time."
- T.S. Eliot


The clearest view, in date order, of what we have done in class and what is due, is to look at my page on the Nobel's website. There you will find daily agendas and upcoming and past assignments.  Remember, if something needs to be submitted you still do that in Schoology. Please use the following paths:

To get to my page:

  1. Go to www.nobelms.com
  2. Academics
  3. English
  4. Mrs. Heffner

To find Agendas:

  1. Go to Calendar (In green shaded box on right side of page)
  2. If the date you want shows, click on it
  3. If the date you want does not show, click on "Show Calendar"
  4. Click on any date to see what we did in class (There are no links or assignments there, only the Agenda)

To view upcoming/past assignments:

  1. Click on your class period under "Classes."
  2. Only a few upcoming assignments will show
  3. To see all/past assignments, click on "Show all assignments"

If you were absent, or have missing work, looking at "Show all assignments," is the best way to find out what you need to do.

To find the agendas, go to my Home Page, the one with the green box on the right side.  Once there, click on "Calendars." Then click on "Show Calendar."  Now just click on the word "Agenda" in the date(s) that you want to see.
