Advanced Language Arts


February 2018

Updated on 2/7/18

Parents, the best way to get a hold of me is by email. Our voice mail at school does not indicate when we have a message, so in order to get back to you in a timely manner, it would be best to email. My email is dmessina@rochester.k12.mi.us. Please feel free to email with any questions, comments or concerns.

Students are currently doing research writing in the media center.  They will create a multi paragraph essay using citations.  All materials needed are located in Google Classroom.


SUPPLIES: All students should have:

Composition notebook

Pens or pencils


glue sticks

dry erase markers


composition notebook

*Any kleenex or hand santizer would be added bonuses to the classroom environment.


ONLINE TEXT IS AVAILABLE! Go to http://my.hrw.com. User name = westla8    password = westla8

This website will not be updated daily, rather I will recap what has been done, and what to expect in the future. If you are absent, you may email me during the school day.


Please keep in mind that I have 4 classes of English/Language Arts. Papers and assignments will be graded in a timely manner, but students should not expect to get work back for at least a week, sometimes 3 depending on the length of the assignment. My RCS is a great tool to check on missing assignments, information regarding that is available on the district web page.

Homework is due the next day, or when a specific date has been given.  Also, please encourage students to inquire about assignments when they are absent.

Have a great week!

Mrs. Messina
