This week, all classes have been working on literary devices and where students have found them in their own reading. On Friday, we'll watch a couple of videos illustrating how many of these devices are used in pop culture. Also on Friday, we'll begin reviewing for a test over the terms.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope this summer has been restful and your child is ready to come back to school! This year will hold many new adventures in our English classroom, and my goal is to help your child along the way. Please note that I am available through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school at (479)369-2146. Your child’s grades will be accessible 24/7 on the E-School website. My grades are kept up to date, and if you ever are concerned or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
This is my sixteenth year to teach, and one thing I’ve learned is that sometimes high school students do not make their parents aware of what is going on the in classroom. This year, I’m implementing a new piece of technology to help with that. The program is called Remind, and it allows me to send e-mail or text alerts to you warning of approaching quizzes, tests or assignments. Please see the syllabus to have access to this amazing technology. Also, we’ll be using Google classroom to help with the management of assignments. Ask your child to see their Google classroom account. I think you’ll be pleased with this technology.
Thank you for trusting me to teach your child. I will endeavor to do my very best and engage your child in learning that is exciting and relevant.
