Mrs. McDermott's Advanced English 8
We Read Shakespeare... What Are You Reading?
No, the portfolios aren't done yet.
This is always and exciting, sad, and stressful times for students and teachers. We're getting ready to leave each other, leave familiarity, and trying to tie up loose ends (or finish correcting portfolios). If you student seems a little cranky in the next couple weeks, that's probably why. Even though I know some are very excited to move on to the high school, transitions and change are still unsettling.
So, if your student signed up for Honors 9, I'll be discussing summer reading with them this week. I'll also attach some info below, so if it pertains to your child, make sure you take a look at the work as it must be completed on the first day of school!
Finals will be Wednesday and Thursday of next week, depending on your child's schedule, and there will be a final over just the Midsummer Night's Dream unit on finals day- we are NOT having a comprehensive final. (Good news!)
As always, feel free to reach out to me with questions or concerns. I believe this will be my last newsletter of the year.
