Dear Learners and Stakeholders, 

Welcome to the SYLLABUS page for our 7th Grade English/Language Arts course!  I am your happy, happy facilitator of learning, Ms. Kimberly "KPS" Perry Sanderlin.  You can learn a little bit more about your instructor HERE.  

We will use this SYLLABUS as our weekly/daily game plan for the course.  Thanks to the ingenuity of Canvas, this is the only public page in the course; allowing us to utilize the Syllabus as our website/daily agenda for the course.  Because of this, it is recommended that you BOOKMARK this page's URL address (, and come back to it if you are in need of direction for your (or your child's) learning path for the course.
