Also - please check your/your student's grades for this interim period! In English 9 especially we are missing a ton of work which as equated to a ton of F's!!!  It is an interim period, so we still have four weeks to bring this up!!! Thanks for your attention, and if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at reidlim@pwcs.edu.

Good afternoon, everyone! It's been a hot minute since I've had an opportunity to write on our blog! In English 9, we are in the middle of The Odyssey, the epic written by Homer. We are halfway now, and students will be presenting their projects tomorrow! They also have a test on the first half of the story on Thursday, March 9. These are worth a combined SIX grades, so please make sure that you all do well! We will focus on writing for the last part of the third quarter, after we finish our story, specifically writing for an argumentative essay (think SOLs in about two years).  In English 10 we are bouncing back and forth between poetry and resumes/interview skills. All sophomores at Potomac will be doing the interviews on March 29 and 30 (the days following our benchmarks). These are required!!! Students will need to dress up nicely for that day (as best they can!) meaning no sweatshirts, sweat pants, athletic gear, ripped jeans, etc. They will also have to present the resumes we have worked on in class. All students have been given the opportunity to reset their logins to their Microsoft Office accounts - and all resumes should have been shared with me already! I have edited them, and we will be doing final drafts next week!   As always, follow me on Twitter (@reidwellPSHS) and on here for updates!
