Welcome to Mr. Saumur's class website! The purpose of this site is to keep parents and students up to date on homework, assignments, important dates and all of the other great things that are going on in Mr. Saumur's Grade 8 Language/Math Classes at Carleton Place High School. This site is a work in progress and will be regularly updated to highlight what is going on in class and within the school.
I will try my best to make sure that any assignments, rubrics, reading material and other sources of information we are using in class can be easily accessed from home or from any personal device.
For the 2017-2018 school year I am teaching two classes Language Arts and Math. The classes I am teaching will be Class 7 (Grade8) in the morning and Class 8 (Grade 8) in the afternoon.
To navigate this website, scroll across the tabs at the top of the homepage. Each class has a designated tab where you can find handouts, questions, links, homework and other useful items.
If you have a question for Mr. Saumur, go to the "CONTACT MR. Saumur" tab, fill out the required fields and your question will be sent to me via email.
