    Wow, September is already over....One Month down, Nine more to go.......
          What a great start this year.  Lots of wonderful returning students, and so many new faces.  It promises to be a great and successful year.  My classes are busy writing and reading.  We have a lot to accomplish and for me, it seems, never enough time to get it all done.
          In October, we will be celebrating the life and works of Edgar Allan Poe.  I am calling it the Poe Project.  Students will learn about Poe and earn points as they complete the daily activities available.  It should be fun.  I'm not sure what is happening, but it seems that the crows are returning to my classroom.  I wonder why?  This project will culminate with a Poe Party on Oct. 31st.
          ACT News....The first group of registered students will be taking the ACT Exam on Oct. 25, 2014, at Aberdeen High School....Starting at 8:00.....They need to be there early to check in at 7:30.  This group of students all know who they are, and I will be contacting them soon with details and reminders.  If any other students would like to register for the next ACT Exam, I would be glad to assist you with that process.  I encourage students who are HSPE eligible, and need to pass the Writing and Reading portions to attempt the ACT....You never know, you just might pass the test with a 13 or better and satisfy that graduation requirement.
    Dragons Rule.....
