I hope you all stayed safe during hurricane Irma!

A few REMINDERS for you:

  1. Please remember to check your grades frequently and turn in any missing work.
  2. Homework is NOT optional. I don’t give a lot of it, so when I do, it is important that you take it seriously.
  3. Please feel free to come in Thursdays at 8:15 to make up work or get extra help. Check in at the cafeteria and then you can head to the classroom. If for some reason I have a morning meeting on a Thursday, I’ll post it on the blog, so that you will know in advance if I’ll be unavailable.

Here are the ASSIGNMENTS for the week:

7th GRADE:

**No homework this week in 7th grade. Remember that you have IOWA testing, so always get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast, and be on time to school.

8th GRADE:

Wednesday: Complete Point of View (POV) practice page: POV Practice

Thursday: Finish drafting STAGE 1 of the Hero’s Journey Archetype: Hero’s Journey Narrative Drafting
