It's finals week! I will not be seeing you until the day of the final so here are some reminders:

1. We will be returning The Catcher in the Rye books during finals so please bring them if you have not returned them already.
2. Your PostSecret projects are due on the day of the final.

If you want your student packets back to help you study for the final, you can come and pick them up in our classroom.

I am including a review sheet and the trivia questions we did not get to - I will not be collecting them but it may be helpful for you to use as a guideline.

Good luck everyone!
