2016-17 Week 34 — April 24-28

Welcome back, everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful Easter Break! We’re on the home stretch now! Monday is mid-quarter, so if you’re missing any work from April, you need to get it completed by mid-week so that I can update the gradebook.

I want to give a special shout-out to my AP Lang folks who showed up on Friday to take the AP Practice test. Thanks for coming, guys! I should have those graded by Tuesday or Wednesday, so if you’d like to come after school and talk about how you did, I’d be happy to chat with you. We can also spend time going over those things next week when some of you will be out for other AP exams. More on that in the next couple of days! 🙂
