English Honors

Mrs. Vandigriff


Welcome to English 9 Honors!  Listed below are a few rules and procedures for our classroom. 



Please be on time to class.  If late, please hand me your pass and take your seat quickly and quietly.  If I have a question or you do not have a pass, we will discuss after class.  Student Handbook procedures will apply.


Grade Breakdown:

Writing/Tests/Projects              50%

Quizzes                                    30%

Homework/Class Work            20%


Homework Policy:

One day late                 =            30 points off

Two days late               =            50 points off


It is your responsibility to turn it in all homework.  If late, please place your work in the basket labeled Period 5.  Be sure to mark your assignment 1DL or 2DL depending on the circumstance.  If not marked, two days late will be assigned.


Absent Work:


If you know that you will be absent for a test or project deadline, it is your responsibility to notify me so that we can discuss alternative arrangements.  I will do my best to make fair accommodations. 


If returning from an unplanned absence, please ensure that you 1) get the make-up work; 2) complete it in a timely manner and 3) submit to me.  Missed worksheets or handouts will be located on the table next to the file cabinet.  See me after class or after school for any questions. 


A class website has been designed with you in mind.  Visit it often for assignments, reminders, and other important information.
