Again, thanks for a fun week.
What a great way to start it off by meeting a decorated author!
Next week it looks like: pie, buns, cookies and –well, more Hutterites. Those of you who have no paid the 6$ fee, please get it to me as soon as possible. We will be leaving school after period 2 on Tuesday and we will be gone the rest of the day. We will aim to be back before the 3:20 bell. Remember to let me know if you want any treats there so I can let them know. The following week should be our video conference with the Holocaust survivor. We have been talking and covering so many targets in history. Time to pick it up and start talking genocide, political prisoners, torture and beyond- some heavy topics.
(Now I know you have a 3 day WEEKEND, but many of you have some projects and assignments to finish up. Tutorial sign up’s will start Wednesday.)

PLANS FOR TODAY!
Final day till TURKEY day:
Period 1: Your essays will be due at lunch time. You will have 1 hour to finish them up in class. If you think it is done- find someone to proof it. Then if you think it is done, go into the stair well and read it aloud. I am going to be painstakingly hard on you for this one in hope you learn a lot when editing and fixing anything up. If there are more than 10 grammatical errors I will hand it back to you and ask you to fix it back up and hand it back in. You will only be able to resubmit after a lunch time with me.
