Last two weeks

I can’t believe we are in the final days of schools. It just doesn’t seem like it should be that time of year already.

ALL spring trip experience work is due on Thursday. I know there was a miscommunication but Disney students need to complete the journal entries and the scrapbook. We are asking that you document your experience. Create primary sources for your experience. Again these are due on Thursday.

If you didn’t attend either trip and were not in school there is a post with the work that you need to complete for the days of the trip.
