North House, today we started classes off with our first SSW of the semester. Mrs. Edwards handed out a stamp sheet that she will use to keep track of how many stamps she gives us which represents the number off SSW’s we had and at the end of the semester he will ask for it and automatically give us our pints. Each stamp is worth 5 points so make sure to keep it somewhere safe. We then did an activity regarding with what we read over the summer. That’s right Romeo and Juliet! We were put into groups of four and had to practically summarize the book but we used sentences that we were given and we then had to match up quotes from the book with the sentences.

North House! Game Plan for today was to do SSR for 20 minutes as usual. After this Mrs. Edwards came around and gave us a packet regarding things going on with LACOE. We then turned to page 41 and she explained to us what we needed to do with this page. In order to get credit for page 41 we need to fill it out and turn it in tomorrow for an E, Thursday for an AE, or Friday for a P. If you turn it in any later than Friday you will get a zero and the office will then have to deal with you. After this Mrs. Hunzeker came in and talked to us about us applying to college and our PSAT scores. She informed us that all 30 students that applied for the USC trip were accepted and that if you’re thinking of not going anymore to tell her by this Friday and also if you want to take the SAT in March or May you have to go sign up with her. Make sure to make an appointment so you don’t miss your chance.

Good evening North house! Hope you all had a good day today. As usual we started off the class with our first 20 minutes of SSR of the second semester. After this we welcomed scribes for this week and assigned some for the rest of the month. Mrs. Edwards then explained to us that our next unit would be Standard Deviants. Which is based on William Shakespeare. We took notes in our notebook which made it our 13th entry. We took notes on a film in which we watched 3 sections of. These sections were Shakespeare’s life and times, Shakespeare’s language, and Elizabethan drama. Don’t forget to do blog number 11. Which is due this Friday at 8:00.

Hello North House! Today was the first day of our 2nd semester, and we welcomed some familiar and new faces today. We got a new transfer named Bruce, and welcomed Britney Wright and Sophia Espinoza to our house. Although we were supposed to the NWEA testing today, it ended up being postponed until Tuesday. Also, Edwards introduced us the new and improved SSR. The new SSR is set up as a point system. Depending on the amount of points you accumulate through out the month, it will determine your grade.
