Nancy Oster

Hello my name is Mrs. Oster.  Welcome to English 8.  

This year students are expected to write book reports every six weeks.  Students will be given the format that is to be used for the reports.  The book report will be a test grade each six weeks.

Students are expected to keep an English folder with all of their graded work in the folder for the six weeks.  I will check the folder every six weeks.

Eighth grade students will take the STAAR Reading test March 29.  Eighth grade students must past this test in order to be eligible to go to high school next year.  Students will take benchmarks throughout and STAAR tutorials will be available later in the school year.  The STAAR Re-test will be May 9.

My tutorials are Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:35 - 4:00.  Students may come to these tutorials if they need additional help or to make up work missed due to absences.  I also have tutorials on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:30 - 7:55 unless I have duty.

My conference period is from 11:35 - 12:30.  The school number is 903-723-0423.  My e-mail is  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
