All help is appreciated!
Each teacher is providing individual tutoring times; please view that teacher's page for the schedule.
READING AT HOME: All students enrolled in English classes will complete a novel each six weeks as independent selection, small group literature circles, or a major class study. Students select these novels from libraries, so parents need to guide their child's choices regarding content in a timely manner so the child can finish projects for the class. See individual teacher web pages for specifics.
