As-Salaamualaikum and welcome to MCC Academy's
Middle School English Language Arts page

The 2016-17 school year starts on Monday, August 29th. On the first day of school students will receive their academic planners. Inside they will find useful dates, as well as information regarding the school conduct and discipline policy. They will be assigned their lockers, and they must bring all of their school supplies. 

For English Language Arts, they will need the following: 
-One 1", 3-Ring Binder 
-One spiral notebook
-Loose-leaf paper
-One pocket folder
-One pack of colored pencils or markers
-Pencils/ Colored Pens/ Sharpener
-Google account

Please visit this website ( to create a free gmail account for your child, if they do not already have one. We will use google docs to write our essays, and there students will share documents with me for initial feedback. While final drafts will be printed and stored in their binders as a part of their English portfolio, google docs is a crucial way to save, edit, and share work throughout the writing process. 

* If your child is too young to have their own account, please create a new account under the parent name and information, and provide the student mutual access with the username and password. This way the student and parent can both login, and parents can monitor any activity if needed.  Please email me if you have any concerns.
