Normally we do a word card, read a few chapters from Treasure Island, and then do a journal entry, but today’s schedule will be very different. Students are taking the Treasure Island final exam on Wednesday and Thursday this week. (It takes two full class periods–about 90 minutes– as it’s an open-book, open-note essay test.) Since Friday, November 2, 2012 is the last day of the quarter, I’m asking that all students finish taking the make-up final by this Friday, October 26, 2012. That allows me time to get it graded before report cards come out.

So students, if you’ve been absent, please set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school by this Friday to finish your final. Remember that I offer a Friday night study hall; it’s possible to finish your test in that study hall, as long as your parents are aware that they must pick you up by 4:30 PM. Every student will be allowed 90 minutes to finish the test.

There was no word card today and no journal question.
