Bookies-- Are You Ready for the Flies?!

All right guys-- no mercy!  I gave out every single copy I could get my hands on, so now I don't have one in front of me to know how long the book is and what sort of page goal I should set.  For now, it's open-ended.  Why don't you tell me-- What should our first goal be?  Comment here and let me know your thoughts!

Have a great Thanksgiving vacay, everyone.  I'll post here in a few days, and I'll see you in December!

Bring Those Permission Slips in ASAP!

Hey Bookies!  It's all-systems-go to see EG this Friday… if you get your permission slips in to me tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest.  Got to move fast, people.  Also, we could use one parent driver, so please have your parent or guardian email me if they could help us out.  Otherwise, maybe I'll try to recruit a teacher.  :)

You must take care of all missing work, in advance if possible.  Check with your 4th and 5th period teachers NOW and see what can be done.  If I get word from them that you have not done this very important step, you will not go.  Don't make me be a bad guy-- take care of business, people.

Yes, we will have a meeting Thursday!  We need to make sure everyone has finished the book (you aren't going if you haven't read it-- period) and debrief about it as a group before we go on this field trip.  So come completely prepared Thursday to the library, please!

Mrs. P

P.S. Don't forget money for concessions Friday.  We will not be lending any out.
P.P.S. We need to start thinking about what we will read next.
