Hello and welcome to English 7 - room R8
This is where you will find out the assignments for the week and see reference to the long term work that will be due for the class. Since this is the first week, there is not much to note, but there are some pieces of information that are due this week. Also, please note that I put the assignments for the week on this page, so if you do not know what an assignment means, that probably indicates that it has not been given yet.
May 28 - 31
Congratulations to the following speech semi-finalists. If you are in periods 1,3 or 5, I will see you on Tuesday to give you your cards so that you can prepare for presenting on Wednesday. Also, you will present in the block that you have English, but on Wednesday, so hopefully you can miss whatever class you have that block or let the judges know so that you can present first. If I have you for periods 4 or 6, I will hunt you up on Tuesday or come to me to get your notecards and you will be able to miss English on Wednesdayas long as it takes for the speeches to finish. And - - - here goes in alphabetical order.
