***Reminder: Library tomorrow. Please bring your books for check-in or renewal!***

Today we worked on an ORQ over the theme of “The Black Cat.” Students did a great job with this assignment! A few students did not finish during class so they took it home to finish as homework.

Students in 2nd hour who did not finish the foreshadowing and theme multiple choice questions also have homework.
