9th Lit Week 18: May 17-19

Dear Students,

The final days of our semester will focus on grade improvement and enrichment. If you are unhappy with your current average, please reach out to me for specific, differentiated tasks to complete that will focus on your “struggle standards”/less-developed skills so you can earn points back in that grade book category. You may also submit missing assignments or resubmit incomplete/low-scoring assignments with my permission. Please reach out to me for guidance. I look forward to working with you individually!
