Teachers please remember to have students put the appropriate heading on their paper and make sure to deliver all student writing samples to the 4th period teacher. 4th period teachers will then need to put the correct writing samples inside the folders of each of their students. Also, teachers please make sure to conduct a make up writing sample for each absent student the day they return to school and deliver those writing samples to the 4th period teacher. 4th period teachers file those papers immediately so when you return your folders to the library on February 25 we should have all student writing samples complete.
