Welcome to Mrs. McDowell's English II Class

Progress Reports for the 2nd Quarter go home THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8th!
Many grades are suffering due to missing work or failing to make up work following absences. It is IMPERATIVE that you complete and turn in all assignments in a timely manner. Once graded assignments are returned to students, I will not accept them! ONE amnesty assignment will be offered at the end of the quarter to replace ONE zero/missing grade. 
 
Please have your parents fill out the bottom of the first quarter reflection page and return to me ASAP for a GRADE. Many students still have not turned this in! These were given out after the first quarter report cards went home!
  
HAVE YOU MISSED A CLASS? 
Find out what you missed by checking the calendar: https://rhs.rcschools.net/apps/events/calendar/?id=u691796 (also located in the menu on the right-hand side of this page). The calendar is updated weekly. 
 
Please review the syllabus for classroom expectations and grading policies. Classroom engagement is a weekly grade. This includes following class procedures, participating in class discussions and group work, and utilizing class time to complete assigned work. Having a good work ethic results in a successful high school experience. 
 
Please be sure to join the REMIND for your class! Updates are communicated through Remind weekly.
