I just wanted to say what a pleasure it has been working with both you and your student(s)!  We had a great year!  Thank you!  I was happy to see that I will have some of them again next year for AC Prep.  

Grades are due by 8:00 tomorrow morning.  I will be wrapping things up this evening.  The average that you see tomorrow will be their final grade for 4th marking period/ the year.

Once again, thank you for all of your support throughout the year!

Students will have the opportunity to work on their individual assignments for the mock trial Monday through Wednesday.  The mock trial will be held on Wednesday and Thursday.  Students may come to school dressed for their roles in the trial.  Students need to carry a pass saying that they are participating in the mock trial, so they are allowed to dress down. 

*This assignment is a large part of the 4th marking period grade.  Please make sure your student has completed his/her assignments and is fully prepared for the trial.

Below you will find trial agenda:


Students will also continue with The Lightning Thief this week.  All reading will be completed in class unless a student is absent.  Students will complete reading quizzes after every 3 chapters.

The students did a nice job with the pre-trial activities.  Below you will find some pictures of the skits that they wrote and performed for the class.






Have a great week!
