Ms. Evans is excited to share that she will be offering a new class next semester. Please read on for more information:
Honors Writing for Publication
Are you interested in creative writing or news writing but don’t know where to start? Honors Writing for Publication is for any student in grades 9-12 who wants to grow their writing skills and play with multiple genres. We’ll practice writing short stories, news articles, creative nonfiction, and more.The hands-on work of drafting, writing, and revising will largely be done during class time with minimal homework required. This is a wonderful opportunity to build your writing confidence, publish your work (a great addition to your college resumes!), and put your free time to good use. Students will also have a chance to aid in the production of the Spartan Review and the Lit Review.  


**Next steps: if you’re interested, please reply to Ms. Evans and Mrs. Bowles. Note whether you prefer meeting during Green Period or during your free period**

Congratulations to Senior, Ali Rumpel, and Sophomore, Mara Thomas, who were both named Volleyball Class A All State!

Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.


The Spartan Book club will be reading The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab this month!  If you would like to join us in discussion of this novel, we plan to meet on Wednesday, November 18 at 3:30 in T103. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend!  Please see Sarah Harrison or Mrs. Street with questions.
