Ms. Maylon Waldrop

Hello friends and families, and welcome to my 8th grade ELA classroom!

My name is Maylon Waldrop, and this year will be my 3rd year here at Hurst.

To keep up with your student's progress, you can access all of their assignments and resources via Google Classroom. You can find the link to Google classroom here: ( The passcodes to join my Google Classes are:

1st Block: c3m6vmz

2nd Block: fmrioqh

3rd Block: yccnukd

Both Google Classroom and my webpage will be updated weekly with an agenda that will lay out all outcomes, activities, and homework for the week. If you would like to be added to your student's class as a guardian to monitor their progress in the class, please email me ( and I will be more than happy to add you. PowerSchool will also be updated weekly for you to check on your student's class progress. 

You can also check the "Weekly Agendas" tab to see what we're doing in class each week and any homework that has been assigned. The Weekly Agenda will also be added to your student's Google Classroom. Along with any homework assigned, please encourage your student to read at least 20 minutes per day. Students who take the time to read every day tend to have better reading comprehension and verbal fluency, two things that will help them succeed in my class (and life)!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out via email or School Status!
Here's to a Hurstastic year at Harry Hurst!
