Important Updates

*AP Exam 5/10 @ 8:00 am

We will be doing a practice MC section in class today. If you don’t have me today and would like to join us, please feel free to do so.

Don’t “study” tonight. Relax, get some good rest, and eat a healthy (NOT BIG) breakfast tomorrow. Please arrive by 7:30. There are almost 150 people taking this exam, so please arrive early enough so that you are not rushed in the process. I recommend you keep your phones in your cars, or you can keep them with me and get them when you’re done.

*EOC Make-up

Please see me ASAP to make up either section that you missed. It can be done in my room during 1st Block or through arrangements made with Mrs. McCabe.

A Day – 5/16, your block; B Day 5/15, your block. You may turn them in early (Monday 5/13 or Tuesday 5/14) if you wish. Late penalties are -20% for each day it is late.
