Dear Parents and Students,

 Welcome back to school. Junior year is an important year in preparing students both for their senior year and for college. All students will be taking the ACT this year and an End of Course Test. So, we will be working together, students and teacher, to prepare for these assessments. However, learning is, and should be, more than just test preparation. We will be learning to analyze and critique fiction and non-fiction pieces of literature, learning to write clearly and expressively, and we will be refining vocabulary and other communication skills. This semester, we will also be doing a research project in order to prepare for senior project.

Please check periodically for new information, and don't forget to sign up for the RSS feed.  If you sign up, you will receive emails about homework assignments, tests and project due dates.

I'm looking forward to a great semester. 

Thank you for your interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or email through this site, or call the front office for a parent/teacher conference.

With best regards,
Rebecca Paul
