2016-17 Week 32 — April 3-7

Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s been a couple of Sundays since I’ve posted our Weekly Update, and I’m sorry that I let that fall to the wayside. I shifted my work time today, starting with lesson plans and finishing with grading, instead of the other way around. I’ll probably be up late grading things later tonight. 🙂

Last week ended on a wonky note, so we’re going to take a fresh start and start this week off on a better note. We’ve only got two weeks until Easter Break (9 class days!!) and then we’ll just have four weeks left until Finals Week! We’re close!!

Don’t forget that we’ve got Lenten Day of Service this Friday. Please bring your permission slips back ASAP so that we can have everything sorted out and ready by Wednesday. If you’re in AP, then I need for you to bring your permission slip and money for the ASF trip to see The Tempest, too!

Let’s take a closer look at this week:

Let’s have a great week! If I’m waiting for permission forms from you, please be aware and turn those in in a timely manner!

PS–For any of you who have read 13 Reasons Why, Netflix has created an original series based on the book. I’m only on the 3rd episode so far, but it’s really good. It’s holding up well against the book (which isn’t something I normally say!). If you’ve read it, check it out! I’d suggest reading the book first, though! It’s a good one!
