A few notes for you to start your year:
-be prepared with pens, pencils, writing paper and a binder every day (if anything else is required, I will write it on the board during the prior class)
– grade 9 students- start looking for your non-fiction books; they need to be here for the 4th of September
– grade 12 students – start thinking about the subject you wish to study this semester
– grade 11/12 students – you need to decide if you wish to do a mini success discussion group with M. Lamon within the English period (3-5 30 minutes workshops)
-grade 11/12 students – I will be starting a scholarship application drop-in period in late September. If you are interested, and only have particular days free, let me know.
-grade 9-12 students – Writing club (fiction or non-fiction, just for fun or for particular contests) will begin late September, as well.
