AOW #3 that was due Friday is now due on Monday.  Due to extended time, I fully expect all students will submit it on Monday.

I will do my best to have all notebooks evaluated by Wednesday; however, I did NOT have all the notebooks at home, so I will have to grade them Monday and Tuesday.  In addition, the power outage prevented me from running all the tests on Wednesday after school.  I plan to run them Monday morning and will try to update the grade book on my prep.  

If you are missing ANY quizzes,Writer’s Notebook prompts, or the Unit Test, plan to stay after school on Wednesday (3-15) in order for scores to be entered in time for the card marking which ends Friday.

For regular LA 4 students (5th hr.)–your scores are in MiStar.  If you did NOT meet proficiency (D or E) on the test, the re-take is Wednesday after school as well.  You MUST attend this session!  

HONORS (3rd & 5th)–Your mini-project for the novel will be done M-T this week, and your final essay test is pushed to the following week. Please bring your novels to class.
