11/17 Post

Friday is a regular day. We will be out of school all next week. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.

ELA - All rough drafts are due the Monday we return. They should be working through the holiday to complete them. The final essay will be typed and is due on 12/2. They will have time to type during class all the week we return.

HSS - Chap 6 Test
They all have study guides for the Chapter 6 test. They need to create flashcards or some type of studying process and show it to me on that Monday we return. The test will be either Thursday or Friday when we return.

As we approach the end of the semester students have asked for extra credit. I will think about it over the holiday. They will only be eligible for the extra credit assignments if they have completed all other regular assignments from Monday 11/14 until the end of the semester.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving - I am grateful to all of you for allowing me to work with your children. They are really great students. Thank you for your support.
