    3. Introductory Paragraph: Due 4/24- Use your Thesis you completed on Thursday to write a full introductory paragraph. Be sure you include a hook, a bridge, and your thesis. You may submit it in ClassKick or email your Introduction to me by Friday night.
     
    INTERIM REPORT REMINDER:
    If you received a FAIL on any assignment listed on your interim report, this means you had not submitted the assignment to me before the interims went out. I will be updating grades throughout the week with assignments as I receive them.
    YOU CAN STILL GET A PASS FOR THESE ASSIGNMENTS AS LONG AS YOU COMPLETE THEM AND GET THEM TO ME!

    Flatten the Curve

    By Mrs. Hiatt

     

    I miss

    your smiles,

    your laughter,

    your enthusiastic mischief.

     

    I miss

    the smell of construction paper

    breakfast pizza,

    Expo markers,

    and counterfeit Takis.

     

    I miss

    high fives and fistbumps,

    dabs and woahs,

    and warm hugs.

     

    I even miss

    your screeching,

    your horseplay,

    and your texting under the desk.

     

    I wake up everyday

    missing my students,

    and go to bed each night

    hoping they are

     

    safe,

    happy,

    and healthy.
