Students are making great progress towards their preparation for the AP test in May. We have done a lot of in class writing, practicing, and revising!

Many have expressed a desire to get started on that presentation over break! We will work on it exclusively in class when we return from break.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I’ll check back in with updates in a few weeks.
