Boy have I missed Raritan! With the aftermath of Sandy, I hope that everyone is safe and helping to rebuild our beloved Jersey Shore home. I will say I have a WHOLE new appreciation for electricity and heat. We were without it for 11 days! No heat during a snowstorm is NOT fun! In all seriousness, I myself am eternally grateful that damage to my home was minimal and that everyone in my family was unharmed.
Let's play catch up shall we?
The last time we were together, we conquered our Quarterly Assessments- which if you need to make up any section of it because you were absent, you need to do so by FRIDAY! I am available before and after school. Please just see me in class to set up a time to complete it.
EXTRA CREDIT! I will allow Marking Period 1 Extra Credit to be turned in by Wednesday November 14th. NO EXCEPTIONS!
MORE EXTRA CREDIT!! Participate on the Freshman Class Clash of the Classes team and earn 5 points! See Mrs. McDermott or Ms. Valenti in C19!
Also, we are almost done with our Poetry Unit! We're going to jump back to
the founder of horror and terror himself.... Edgar Allan Poe! We will be discussing his most famous poem The Raven and an excellent example of onomatopoeia The Bells.
I will also be handing out your poetry project - due on November 20th.
Please note you WILL NOT be given class time to work on this project.
Welcome back all!
