Third Snow Day of the Week!

What a week it has been! I woke up to surprising news on the school district superintendent’s Twitter account that Surrey Schools were closed for the third day this week. I hope you are all staying safe and avoiding walking or driving.


Maintenance staff and grounds crew are at schools clearing snow and making it safe for us when we return. Make sure to show your appreciation for their hard work by thanking them and being considerate of them when we return to school.

Congratulations on a successful semester!


This is how I feel after I finish writing a test on the last day of the semester!

Congratulations on finishing the semester up strong with a inquiry project or persuasive essay and final exam in the final week. I hope you enjoy your three days of rest before we jump into the second semester.

I’m looking forward to English 10 with many of you next semester!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome back to school!


We only have 4 more weeks left in semester 1 so please make sure you are caught up on all of your assignments so your last weeks aren’t stressful. There will be many exams and projects in all of your classes so be prepared for a busy few weeks ahead.
