Please Note! Students should be working on their year end A to Z Project that was assigned last week. This is a time intensive project and I don’t want them putting this off until the last minute! I’m encouraging my students to complete a little every night so that they are not rushing to complete the night before. The final project is due on Wednesday, May 8th. As incentive to complete earlier, I’m giving extra credit to those students who turn it in on Monday, May 6th. I will deduct 10 points from the final project grade for each day it is late after Wednesday the 8th. Please email if you have any questions about the assignment.
