Thank you, students, for an excellent mock STAAR session this morning. I was so impressed with how well you behaved and how seriously you took it – I am going to brag to the other English teachers that I have the best 9th grade students in the school.
No homework for tonight – enjoy the respite! One note though – I heard that there might be some sort of dance performance for which some of you would like to miss class tomorrow? If that is at all optional, you need to be in English. Tomorrow we’re starting Dracula and setting up some big expectations for how class over the next three weeks is going to work, what you need to be watching for as you read the novel, how our reading is going to lead to a major grade, etc.
So please – come to class. See you all tomorrow (I hope!).
