Our first short week back will be a get-to-know-you project. You will all be writing a brief narrative where you tell me a little bit about yourself. You will then make book covers that represent who you are in a visual way.

Please take a look at the Forms and Docs to see the Syllabus posted for this semester. Parents or students, please e-mail with any questions.

I have added the Google Translate button on the website (seen below). Any content that you want to translate just highlight and copy the word(s) or sentences, click on the translate button, and paste them into the box that says English. Then switch the right box to the language that it needs to be translated to and hit "Translate."
