The freshmen are all invited to buy a ticket for the 7:00 PM showing of the new 2021 version of West Side Story at AMC Theater in Manitowoc on Wednesday, December 15th. If you want to come along, but you are not a freshman, come anyway! The more the merrier! We hope to have a good-sized group to sit together and enjoy this update of a musical classic. The movie already has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and is sure to be a modern classic. In January, the freshmen will read Romeo & Juliet, which West Side Story famously adapts. See you there!
SEMESTER EXAM INFORMATION
The end of the semester is coming fast which means Semester exams. This past week, students received the study guides that will help them begin getting ready for those exams. These exams are of great benefit to our students who are preparing for standardized tests, college placement tests, college level courses, or exams in the workforce to advance. No exam will be more than 20% of the overall grade for the course. Please encourage your students to finish strong and begin to prepare for those exams.
Missing work: Any work past these deadlines will result in your student being ineligible and will require an after school study period to finish the work. Dec 3rd- Everything from Nov 19th or before Dec 10th- Everything from Nov 26th or before Dec 17th- Everything from Dec 10th or before (note this is only 1 week) Dec 20th- All work is due (anything not in will require an after school study hall) Any other work remaining will be made up starting Dec 22nd at 8am. According to our policy, all work is due 10 days after our last academic day. This semester all work is due by Dec 27th at 11:59pm. Work not in results in an F for the class.
