This is the first week of school and I can't wait to get to know you and work with you in class this year. Some of our first days together will be spent getting to know one another, but we will also be quickly jumping in to grammar reviews and studying for tests.

Monday will be a day of review for your Flowers for Algernon test on Tuesday. This test is very important and you must pass it to remain in Honors English 9. Please feel free to email me (mzangari@northschuylkill.net) with any questions regarding the test and I will make an effort to get back to you as soon as possible.
