 ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE STUDYING FOR FINAL ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM!!     Be sure to FINISH reading the play; complete ALL study guide questions; they, along with the colored-in study aid, are due at the BEGINNING of class.  I will walk you through the portion of play we did not read in class to ensure understanding.

ALL STUDENTS: MRS. PHILPOT”S ENGLISH CLASS IS NOT AN INDEPENDENT STUDY COURSE.  WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN ABSENT FROM CLASS, YOU HAVE MISSED INSTRUCTION AND PRACTICE THAT CANNOT BE COMPLETED ON YOUR OWN. (What we do in class is not something that can be “emailed”  for you to make-up.)
