Good afternoon! Just wanted to say hello, and offer a friendly reminder that next week is the end of ... can you believe it ... the THIRD quarter!!!  All late work (for sophomores or freshmen) will not be accepted after Tuesday, April 4. Please ensure all tests/quizzes that need to be made up are done by then. They can be taken during the next flex period OR after school on Tuesdays/Thursdays until 3 p.m.  English 9: We are finishing up The Odyssey, Homer's classic epic! Students have, for the most part, done very, very well with the content and those who paid attention scored very well on the tests! However, many students are missing some crucial items, such as tests that need to be made up, quizzes that can be made up for partial credit, and projects from the beginning of the quarter. Please look! These NHI grades are the major contributing factor to many of the Fs in English 9!!! English 10: We are finishing up our resumes to use during the mock interviews which will take place this Wednesday, March 29 and this Thursday, March 30. Students are asked to come dressed nicely, as if they are truly interviewing for a local customer service job. Nice jeans (no holes or tears), polos, v-necks (plain, no brands), dresses, skirts, etc. are asked to be the attire of the day as they're being graded by their interviewer on presentation, their resumes, and how they handle themselves in the interview. This is to give our sophomores some real-life skills they can use as soon as they're of working age/applying for jobs!  Many sophomores haven't looked at their edits of their resumes - please have them login to their Office 365 account (http://office365.pwcs.edu - the login is simply their PWCS full e-mail account (they should have this - if not feel free to e-mail me and I will get it) and password. They can access their resumes via their One Drive (click the Cloud icon once they're officially logged into Office 365). I have edited ALL resumes I had in my inbox - if there are questions regarding these, please feel free to let me know!!!  Also, just as a head's up: next quarter I will be out on maternity leave starting (if all goes according to plan) on May 30 through the end of the school year. There will be a long-term sub in for me, and as soon as I know his/her contact information I will post it so everyone has access!!! :) Thanks so much for all your help guys - ONE MORE QUARTER TO GO!

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!
