Happy New Year! Some updates…

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are enjoying your break!!

I will be updating grades between now and Saturday… be patient as I post cause I will be doing it slowly. : )

Remember, if you did not turn in your Dynamic Character poster on Scrooge, it MUST be turned in by Monday when we return — NO EXCEPTIONS.

I will no longer be accepting late work when we return, so please check student connect by Sunday morning and make sure all your work is turned in by Monday. Also, I have quite a few no names for some homework assignments. If you are positive you turned in something, please ask to see the pile of no names. Be more responsible next time.

Homophones Activity

Queenie’s Story

At five feet six and a hundred and ten pounds, Queenie Volupides was a sight to be hold and to clasp. When she tore out of the house after a tiff with her husband, Arthur, she went to the country club where there was a party going on.

She left the club shortly before one in the morning and invited a few friends to follow her home and have one more drink. They got to the Volupides house about ten minutes after Queenie, who met them at the door and said, “Something terrible happened. Arthur slipped and fell on the stairs. He was coming down for another drink — he still had the glass in his hand — and I think he’s dead. Oh, my God — what shall I do?”

The autopsy conducted later concluded that Arthur had died from a wound on the head.
