ALL CLASSES:
- If you would like to submit your revised poem to Soundings--and have my approval--please send it to Mrs. Silverstein at JoanS@td.edu, and copy me (ginny.light@yahoo.com). Put in the subject line of your email: YOUR NAME--SOUNDINGS 2018. All poems should be submitted no later than November 10th. You will not receive extra credit if you do not submit your poem to Mrs. Silverstein and copy me on your email.
- Remember that Friday is SSR day! Our final SSR day for Q1 will be Thursday, November 9th, and ALL SSR LOGS WILL BE DUE.
- All assignments must be turned in by November 15th to be included in Q1.
- Please note: I do not plan to hold conferences for anyone whose average is currently 75% or higher. I will, however, reach out to some students individually, as well as send Progress Reports to those in need.
