Remember to use time wisely.  Time management is a skill that is developed.  Use your 50 minutes in class to your advantage.  Focus yourself INSIDE of class so that you have more time for other things OUTSIDE of class :-)

If you fall behind in reading or if you have been absent, please talk to Ms. O'C so that she can help you to catch up! Great job everyone!  Our English II classes are just great!  Thank you all for your enthusiasm and cooperation in making it enjoyable!
