This week in Room 2808…
- Please check PowerSchool — if you have a zero for an assignment that you have not recently turned in, please get that to me ASAP. The longer you wait, the more points you lose.
- THIS FRIDAY (10/20) is an Early Release Day for Teacher Professional Development. We will observe an Early Release schedule. American Lit 3-1B and APLC 4B will meet in Ms. Ausley’s classroom and then go to the College & Career Fair. Enloe will be hosting more than 65 regional colleges and universities, as well as military branches and employers — just for our students!
- If you are excessively tardy, you will spend lunch detention with me. If you miss your assigned lunch detention, you will be written up for non-compliance (per school policy). Be in class on time.
