Genius Hour

"Genius Hour" due dates have been updated.  This is due to the loss of time in class to complete the writing process (see below).    

  • 2-hour delays last week
  • I was absent on Wednesday.  
  • January 15th is a holiday (no school).
  • Upcoming Early Release days (Students will be released at 1:00 on January 18th & 19th.) 

Most students completed the final draft of the Research Paper last week.  We will continue to revise, edit and perfect writing this coming week (January 8-12).  Presentations can be turned in at any time.  However, the last day I can accept work for Quarter 2 Report Cards is January 19th.
