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.



Office Hours and Directions for when Schoology is Down

I am always available by email during my scheduled office hours on Mondays from 12:40-1:15.  If you contact me during other times, I will still answer you as soon as I can, but will be sure to get back to you within 48 hours.  I will also try to answer any questions in the evenings and weekends, but I may only check my email occasionally at those times. You also have the option to schedule a conference that we may choose to conduct over zoom or phone.  Let's stay connected for success. 
If Schoology is down, or really anytime, emailing me directly is preferred.  My email is jheffner@lausd.net
Also if Schoology is down, you may still access all assignments from my website page.  You can still do the work, and then submit it to Schoology when it is back up.  Remember, go to your class under "Classes," and then click on "Show All Assignments" to be sure you are seeing everything when you are on my website page.  
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  We can get through this!!!!

"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
