TUTORING

No tutoring will be offered during lunches this week due to the Child Protection Unit. Dr. Smith will be teaching the remaining lessons to Mrs. Akin's homeroom on Monday and Tuesday and to Mrs. Schirmer's homeroom on Wednesday and Thursday. Any students needing additional support are welcome to come see me during homeroom this week. I'll also work with students who want extra help during our additional 30 minutes (12:55-1:25).

SOCIAL STUDIES TEST

Attached is vocabulary for this unit as well as the study guide.

COMMAS QUIZ

Students should refer to notes in their grammar journals when preparing for Friday's commas quiz. There is no study guide since the journal has everything students need to be successful.
