Snow Days = Messed Up Schedules

In case you're wondering, here is what's happening as far as our homework schedule post-snow days (:

(the following message is written by Mrs. Gregory)

We will push everything back a couple of days. On Wed we will discuss chps 8-9, and then read chps 10-11 for Thurs and the last part, chps 12-14, for Fri. The dialectic journal will be due on Fri. On Wed we'll also go over the beauty synthesis essay, and we'll move the practice timed writing from Tues to Fri (probably). I'll still take up the CEJ tomorrow, though. I haven't updated my school website since we haven't been at school.
