Welcome back! Please be sure that you purchase your vocabulary book. Freshmen should purchase Vocabulary Workshop, Level E. Juniors should purchase Vocabulary Workshop, Level G. We will begin using the books the first full week of school, so please be sure that you have purchased the vocabulary book in a timely fashion. Thank you.
Learning should be fun! I believe strongly that while my students learn from me, I too learn from my students. Come in with a great attitude, ready to work hard, laugh a lot, get involved in class discussions, and learn every day.
