WELCOME TO MIDDLE SCHOOL ENGLISH & WRITING

2019~2020

Who I am:  My name is Nancy Catanzarite.  I'm a veteran teacher, beginning my 20th year of teaching.  I am beyond excited to start my third year at Mishawaka Catholic School teaching 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade at the St. Monica campus. My husband, Pat, and I were married 29 years ago at St. Monica, and 3 of our 4 children were baptized here. All of our kids are grown, graduated from college, and living the adult life now. Our two daughters have blessed us with 5-year old twin grandsons, a 17-month old granddaughter, and a brand new granddaughter born November 12. 

What we will be doing this year: I am very excited to be using a brand new English/Grammar textbook series, Voyages in English. We will be focusing on the mastery of grammar, writing, vocabulary, listening, and speaking skills. We will be covering the Indiana academic state standards. The Accelerated Reader program will be utilized this year, too. 

Supplies needed: Students are expected to come prepared for class each day with:

  • Planner
  • Pendaflex/Organizer
  • English text & Vocabulary Workshop book
  • Grammar, Writing notebooks
  • Pens, Pencils, Highlighters

Middle School late work policy: Student work should always be turned in on the day it is due. However, unless the student is absent, late work will be handled in this manner:

  • Assignments turned in ONE DAY late will receive the penalty of –20%.
  • Assignments turned in TWO DAYS late will receive the penalty of –50%.
  • After three days, the assignment will be accepted but will receive a ZERO.

REMINDERS FOR HAVING A SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL YEAR: 

Write all assignments/tests/quizzes in planners!
Check off each item as you complete it!
Turn in your completed work ON TIME! 
Put forth 100% effort & take pride in all you do!
Always strive to do your PERSONAL BEST!
