Adar! Fun and frivolity!

From Mr. Frank: Spirit Day – February 27
In honor of Rosh Hodesh Adar, we’ll dial up our Davis ruach for our third Spirit Day Monday. Students and Faculty are invited to wear Davis uniform bottoms or jeans and any Davis Academy spirit top.

I know you all want your essay grades. Please be as patient with me as I was with you. I want to make sure to give you feedback that will help you improve your skills. That will take a few days.

Remember: Tutorial for the Verb Unit on Monday and Tuesday during study hall. Recovery assessment Wednesday during study hall.

Enjoy reading this unit's novels. Standard annotation: questions, comments, predictions, and connections. You should be finished with your book by March 31.

This week:

Day 1: Avoiding fragments, run-ons, and comma splices.
Day 2 and Day 3: Descriptive writing - how to make your sentences more elaborate and specific.
Day 4: Our Native American ancestry and how it connects to our ancestry as Jews.

Homework this week: Continue with Membean and read your novel.

NOTE: Friday is a "B" schedule as we kick off Adar with all-school Kabbalat Shabbat.

FYI...the eagle chicks are about 2 weeks old. Here's a recent shot:
