I hope you were able to complete reading your mystery novel and graphic organizer. Over the break, I read five books including Matched. I also completed quite a bit of grading. You will find your grades already posted to NetClassroom. I waited to post your Written Midterm portion so I could explain here that many of you will be rewriting your essays. I will be conferencing with each of you individually this week to return your papers and midterms. At that time, those of you who need to rewrite will get feedback on what needs to be edited for an improved score.
I look forward to seeing you all, weather permitting!
