We hope you had a fun and safe Fall Break!  

  • Passages and Rough Draft for your Book Assessment are due!  Your final draft -- the completed and absolutely awesome cube itself -- is due on Monday and Tuesday.   No late work will be accepted for that.
  • Friday, October 19, is the last day to hand in make-up or revised work.  That includes your MYAccess paragraphs, spelling tests, etc. 
  • Make sure your reading logs are in your composition books.  They will be checked by the end of the week. 
    • If you are missing days on the log, use the golden-rod make-up sheet to replace those points.  That must be turned in with parent or guardian signatures by October 25.
