Make sure you have turned in your copy of Taming of the Shrew to Smith if you haven't already.
Next Thursday there will be counselors coming to talk to us about the scheduling process. And we will also be talking about moving onto Honors classes next year.
We looked at an article about decorating office walls with post-it notes and creating designs like Wonder Woman and Superman, and Smith believes it would be a very cool idea to do something like that in our classroom. Thoughts?
Bring in money to contribute to sticky notes. We will try to get this started on Thursday.
Painter's Tape: Izzy, Griffin, Smith
Sticky Notes: Allie
-Wonder Woman and Batman : Bella, Tyla, Katherine
