Another Snow Day. What the heck...

You're all at home again and I'm at school all lonely.  Here are some things to consider as you have this surprise three-day weekend.

All Students - Our next day at school will be an A-day.

AP English III:  You all should all be able to complete all reading and be caught up moving into Monday's class.  Remember to be to the end of chapter nine and to have all motif charts and annotations updated to this point as well.  In addition, I have met with Ms. Baker and we have adjusted the due dates of the Research Project.  Hopefully this is the last adjustment:

Outline Due:  March 13, 2014
Rough Draft Due:  March 24, 2014
Writing Conferences:  March 24 - April 2, 2014.  Only morning and lunch on 3/27.  
No conferences on 3/28.
Due Date:  April 9, 2014.  
Final Due Date:  April 10, 2014.  (Ten point deduction, lateness)

Be sure that you are moving to complete all of these deadlines.  Several of you have been speaking with me about your arguments.  Continue to ask questions to make this project come together easily for you.

Russian I:  Spend the weekend with your fundamentals.  We'll be beginning a review of cases before going on to our unit exam.  I'm planning that your Third Unit Exam will be held on 3/25 and 3/26.  We'll be reviewing a lot over the next two weeks to prepare!

Honors English II:  You will still have your quiz next class, so be sure that you're getting ready for it.  Also, you will still have your MGP project workshop.  I hope that all of you are reading over this time and taking good notes.  On Tuesday, you will need to work on a project, you should not be reading but being productive.

ESL English III:  This day off gives all of you a chance to be working on your visual projects.  Remember to focus on the characters.  Their faces, their expressions, to indicate how people are feeling and the general tone of the piece.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.  Remember our due date of March 17, 2014.  

Also - ESL and Honors Students - Don't forget that I can start accepting money for the Holocaust Memorial Trip on Monday.  Remember to give part or all of the cost to reserve your spot on the bus!
