The list was posted in my window and with all junior English teachers on Tuesday, May 31st. 


You have until June 10th to decide if this is the class for you.  Reevaluate your schedule, your commitment, and your level of give-a-darn.


The summer assignments can be printed from locker on this page, below the reading girl on this page.  See the folder:  AP Lit 2016-17 Summer Assignments

About this site

Welcome to my School Loop website.  General information that goes out to both classes, or to anyone who visits my site, will be here on this main page.

While there is a calendar on SchoolLoop, you will probably only see due dates that also appear in the gradebook.  I usually write my own calendars, and email those home when they update.  Contact me through SchoolLoop or at

The  'Issues of Interest' page includes links to contests, articles, and quotations about reading and writing.  Please visit!  Bookmark this site and make it a favorite (even though I'm sure you have other sites you prefer)!

Library Information

A reminder about our Library services:

Hours: Monday- Thursday 7:30-3:40 and Friday 7:30-3pm

If the class is not scheduled for the library, students are permitted by the teacher to come in up to five at a time, with a PINK HALL PASS (if students do not have a PINK HALL PASS they will be sent back to class to get it NO EXCEPTIONS and NO SUBSITUTIONS.)

Book Checkout and EB testing is the LAST 10 minutes of EVERY period unless other arrangements have been made with library staff.

Computer Usage: The library has 36 computers for student use (8 Macs and 28 PC's), but most computer work should be done in the drop -in labs (Rm 232 and 310).  The library DOES NOT have access to computer login information; for student login information, see Mrs. Smith in the computer lab.

Student textbook distribution is also the LAST 10 minutes of every class period with their class schedule and current ASB card- NO EXCEPTIONS. We have a textbook lost and found for students who have lost their textsbooks or we can give them their barcode number to help them find it. 

Coming Outside of Class Time: Students may come in on their own time before school, break, lunch, and after school Monday-Thursday

Reasearch: The library subscribes to 5 different databases spanning a wide range of topics for every disciple.  Please see Amy Cummins if you would like to integrate those into your curriculum and research projects or if you would like additional support with your teaching!

Additional information like our EB Book List, EB deadlines, database links, textbook policy, and other helpful information can be found on our web page Please see Amy Cummins in the library if you need help or for clarification on our services.
