If you are paying the entire balance in one full installment, you will need to pay in the school office with cash or check by Friday morning, April 24th or you will be billed by FACTS that afternoon. Please contact me if you did not receive your payment paperwork. The trip is May 11th-14th and more details about the weekly activities will be sent home soon.

We have been writing some scrapbook poems which have been great fun.  Grammar will be moving from adverbs to prepositions.  This is a tough concept for students so we may be here for a while.  The argumentative essay continues and will be finished soon.  We are looking at the process and will be using the product to work on speech debates.
