Thank you for your patience while I have been out. I am back, and so glad to be back!

Today, we worked on the idea of opposites in the play Romeo and Juliet. Students chose a pair of opposites, from a list developed in class, and wrote a paragraph explaining how the pair are demonstrated as opposites in the play using examples from the films.

Progress Report Issue

Dear Students and Parents,

I had a technical glitch when submitting grades for this progress reporting period. Nearly all grades appear with a - (minus) that should not be there. All grades should be read as "solid letter grades," meaning that you should ignore any + or - that appears on the progress report. If it says A-, it is really an A, B- is a B, etc. If you have a question, please contact me directly or look to your Aeries portal account to see the actual percentage.
