First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! I gave time today (again) for everyone to work on their research paper drafts. I realize that I am devoting a lot of class time to the completion of this task, but I cannot emphasize enough its importance. The research paper is absolutely ESSENTIAL for successful completion of the course.
Drafts are due Monday. If you do not have your draft by Monday, rest assured that I will be sending you to the principal’s office. You cannot graduate without completing your Senior Project; you cannot complete your Senior Project without your research paper. Please get this assignment done.
On another note, please be mindful of your attendance. Mrs. Johnson had a serious talk with all of you today about your absences. Though some of you have demonstrated excellent class attendance, roughly half of you have excess absences and tardies. (A few of you cannot miss another day–if you do miss another day, you cannot graduate.)
