The ELL 1 class counted and we only have 12 more school days after today until the end of the semester. For full-year classes like Humanities, it will be business as usual but for semester classes, they will be ending on January 24. Semester 2 will start on January 29th with a Flex Day.
I’m looking forward to a good year and hope that we can work hard to make this a great start.
I hope you enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday season with friends and family. I am looking forward to seeing you in the new year!
All classes have some holiday homework so please check your class page for the details and downloads, in case you have lost the package.
