SUBSTITUTE AGENDA November 9, 2016 

Dear Substitute,

Thank you for being here.  My classes and students are wonderful. .  

In the English classes students are working on an Independent Reading project requiring them to bring, read, and annotate in their novel each day and make entries into a reading log.  They should be sharing their entries with a reading elbow partner.  

In the journalism classes students are working to produce the school newspaper and the online site.  The students are all working on articles, photos, illustrations, and practice assignments.  Their assignments will take most of their time over the next week.

If there are any concerns please feel free to contact me at  

Thank you again.
