Students are no longer  permitted to turn in late work (designated with an "M" or "Missing" in Engrade).  Work not turned in due to an absence (designated with an "A" in Engrade), either on the day assigned or  checked, must be shown  to me in a timely manner proportional to the number of days absent.  Absent work turned in beyond the  reasonable deadline will not receive full credit.

Upcoming Events:
        1.    Test on subject-verb agreement: Tuesday, 4/30
         2.  FSA ELA/Reading: Wednesday & Thursday, 5/1-2
         3. FSA Mathematics: Tuesday & Wednesday, 5/7-8

I will be out of the building  on Monday, April 22 through Wednesday, April 24.  On Wednesday, April 17 and Thursday, April 18, students will be given the materials needed for classwork on those days as well as a contract to be signed  indicating their understanding of their responsibilities.  For transparency, I am providing links to the contract  and the map distance worksheet this week.  The subject-verb agreement packet consists of 4 separate links.  The directions on the students' printed version  are DIFFERENT than  on the forms I am legally permitted to link to my website.  If you need to reprint this packet,  make sure to use the directions  on the website under classwork  4/22-24.
