Welcome to Ms Harrison's English Webpage

Parent Survey


This page has been created to help my students (that would be you) to navigate through my classroom a little easier.
Come here to:
  • Read the rules
  • Look at plans I have for the year
  • Look at the grading scale
  • Check assignments. Use the column on the right to find assignments for the appropriate week.
  • Find old assignments or journals in the Archives at the bottom of class assignments.

Welcome to Ms Harrison's English Pages! On these pages my students will find all of the information they need about the courses I am currently teaching. I have made every attempt to make this page as student friendly and as parent friendly as possible.
*NOTE* This web page is a work in progress. I will add additional materials as I feel they are needed to keep this website up to date. My goal in creating this Wikispace was to provide a valuable tool to facilitate student learning and to keep parents informed as to what we are currently covering in my English classroom. On these pages my students will find their class syllabus
, the breakdown of work scheduled and the current class schedule. If you are absent from class for whatever reason - illness, vacation, extracurricular activity, family emergency - check this space to find the assignments and materials you will need to keep up to date with the required course work. Of course, as the teacher, I must reserve the right to modify and adjust lesson plans and materials as I feel justified. Please, feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns regarding classwork and assignments.

National Honor Society

As the advisor for National Honor Society, I am fortunate to work with some of the best students at Moorcroft High School. NHS is made up of juniors and seniors at Moorcroft High School that have a cumulative GPA of a 3.3 or higher, are involved in community service projects, show leadership in and out of the classroom and exhibit outstanding character by the choices they make in life. The Solomon Chapter of the National Honor Society is actively involved in both Moorcroft High School and the community of Moorcroft. Some of the projects we are involved with include:
          • Fundraising for the Moorcroft Senior Center
          • Helping in the Annual Treat Street at the Moorcroft Elementary School
          • Hosting the annual NHS Talent Show that provides food and money for the local food pantry
          • Angel Tree -- Christmas Baskets with Moorcroft Chamber
