    2023-2024

         It is crucial that students complete all of their work when it is assigned, meet all the expectations set forth for each assignment, and put forth 100% effort on ALL assignments.  Extra assignments and other extra work will not be provided to raise a grade. However, ALL students will receive optional extra credit opportunities monthly.  Students will receive an e-mail with the details for extra credit opportunities 1-2 times a month.  After successful completion of the extra credit, students will receive a coupon with  the number of points earned that can then apply to any assignment or assessment PRIOR to the grading  of the selected assignment.

    SNOW

     

    The snow is a bird, soft-feathered and white.

    Silent and graceful is her flight

    As she swoops to earth and spreads her wings

    Over the beautiful unborn things;

    Seeds and bulbs that soon will tower

    Out of the next of the ground, and flower.
