- Tomorrow: Students must have a complete, printed draft of their narrative writing assignment for peer revision tomorrow. The polished copy is due on Monday. Students will also register for a turnitin account during class tomorrow.
- Today students had an opportunity to re-submit their portfolio items for September.
