Please note that the Reading Record will not be collected again this trimester since late work will not be received after Friday, June 5.
You do not need to continue recording your reading for the language arts class; however, it is my sincere hope that students continue reading to prepare for the rigor high school.
Last Day to Submit Late LA Assignments: 06/05
In order to allow time to calculate final grades for the third trimester, the last day to submit late language arts assignments is June 5.
Work submitted after June 5 will not receive credit.
