Week of December 5th

Progress reports will be sent home this week for all students who are, or near, failing. Even if you will not be receiving a progress report, this is an excellent time for you to check on your grades. Be sure you are happy with them. If you are not, about half of the marking period remains. That is enough time to turn things around. Please check your grades sometime this week. If you are unable to do this, see me and I will give you an updated grade.

Additionally this week, all English classes will be working on our next vocabulary unit. It has been a while since we have done vocabulary because of shortened weeks and holiday breaks. Remember the schedule for vocabulary weeks is always the same: Monday you will get definitions. Wednesday you will have sentences due. Thursday we will review and Friday will be your quiz.
