Welcome & Classroom Information
The students are expected to copy their assignments in the Las Colinas Student Handbook for each subject on a daily basis. Changes made in class are not always reflected on the homework website.

Please be sure to bring your Literature books (Literature book, Close Reader, composition book), History workbook, charged up chrome book, agenda, folder and outside reading book to class each day. Thank you for being prepared for class!
Please return the field trip permission form for the "Egypt's Lost Cities" exhibit at the Reagan Library that will take place on March 12th, 2020. We will be traveling to the Library by bus, and each student will need to turn in a signed permission form. Hopefully, all of these forms will be turned in by Friday, January 10th, 2020, so they can be collected in advance.
The Historical Fiction book report worksheet will be due the Wednesday, January 8th, the week the students return in January, 2020. There is a sample book report on the back of the worksheet for the students to follow. Only the worksheet will be due. (We went over the directions for this report in class)
Also, students are assigned to read a genre of their choice, beginning December 20th. A reading log to keep track of their daily reading will be due back and signed by a parent on Wednesday, January 8th. This will be in place of a December book report.
5th period Drama students - Please practice your scripts over the vacation so you are prepared for the practice presentations when you return in January 2020.
Are you stressed out? Don't have the money to take a European vacation? Try calling the Getty Villa in Malibu or booking online and plan a day where you'll feel like you took a mini vacation to Rome and Greece. You and your family will be able to walk past statues and works of art that are 3,000 to 4,000 years old! All of this can be enjoyed for the price of parking as there is no admission fee. Plus there is a cafeteria style restaurant, with outdoor views of the ocean. To top it off, there is a wonderful gift shop!
