We had fantastic conversations today about the Penelopiad, as our lesson!
Lots of important announcements:
1. An extra credit opportunity, due Monday: Be the Bard
2. Another extra credit/redemption opportunity – come after school tomorrow (3:30 to 5:30 PM) and we’ll watch O Brother, Where Art Thou?, which tells a story parallel to the Odyssey
3. This I Believe essay final copies are due tomorrow – the author of the best one from each class will be invited to a pizza party, and will have the opportunity to win a prize! (I don’t know what the prize is.)
