Hello! Welcome back (almost) to another school year! This is your Junior year and you’ll find that things move incredibly fast. Let’s have a great year!
Go ahead and join the Google Classroom for your class. Go to Classroom.google.com, click the + symbol and Join Class and enter the code below:
- English 11: c7nrz1
- AP Lang: b8s4sa
These codes are for students. Once I have the students established, I will activate the Guardian/Parent access so that parents can check on assignments as needed.
Since we are approaching tax-free sales weekend, I wanted to share with you my supply lists so that your students can be prepared for English 11 or AP Lang. We’ll hit the ground running from Week 1, so it is important that they are prepared to work.
