Week 12 — Oct 27

We had a great Homecoming Week! Thank you all for your participation. You made my first MCPS Field Day lots of fun. (I even survived Zombie Day, though it was close! 😉 )

We’ve got quite a bit going on this week, so let me give you some quick notes.

Sophomores, your field trip is on Thursday. There are still about 30 people who haven’t turned in the Field Trip permission form. I need that form ASAP. Please bring it in MONDAY. Also, if you’re planning to have pizza for lunch after the field trip, you need to be sure to give me $5 by Tuesday so that I can give Mr. Sherman the correct number. I also need a few more drivers for this trip. Our big bus is not working right now, so I need several extra drivers to help us transport students to Davis Theater and back to school. If you can help with this, please let me know as soon as possible!

The last part of this week is heavy on due dates, but remember that we had plenty of class time to work on those assignments this past week. Also, if you aren’t sure how to do a podcast, it is important that you speak up at the beginning of class on Tuesday. We will make sure that you get help. Most of you have had to do at least one podcast this year or last year, so most of you have a good idea about how to start.
