Apologies...I have been absent due to illness. But I'm back now, and making a big effort to catch up with, and complete, assignments that were due. They must be submitted before the Christmas holiday begins. 8H-8M Language Arts 1. (8M) Final copy of Soldier's Journal entry is due tomorrow. Homework will not be assigned from now until Christmas. All assignments will be worked on in class. If class time is not used wisely, and assignments are not kept up to date, then those students will have "work to be completed at home".
