Your Resources:

  • TCA 8th Grade Websites- study resources and materials can be found to help support students at home as well as a calendar of upcoming tests and quizzes.

  • Infinite Campus- many assignments are listed in advance complete with due dates.

  • Course Teachers- the student’s teacher is the best source of information for questions about tests and assignments in his/her class.

  • Study Skills- extra support is provided to help students communicate with teachers, set goals, manage time and resources, and meet due dates. This is not a study hall.

  • Student Planners- students should consistently record weekly assignments and discuss progress with parents.

  • SCHOOLOGY!!! In-school students can use Schoology as a resource! Check for opportunities to watch lessons, turn in assignments, take tests... At-home students, enjoy your daily Schoology learning!
