Get A Spring in Your Step! It's time to get lots of work done

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.” ― Pablo Neruda

Spring Break will be hear in less than twos and we have lots of work to do.

We are ending the 3 quarter in two weeks. When student return after spring break our 2nd Exhibition series will begin. We will continue to use our tracking systems to determine if students are being productive in class. Students should also be doing 3-5 hours of work outside of class. If you are not doing Homework, you are not trying to get better at reading, writing and making sense of the world.

This week we will start Unit 6 , Online Privacy Non Fiction Text and Argumentative Writing unit .

Here is what's been going on and what's coming up.
