Be responsible Attend and sign in for all Dual meetings LISTEN TO ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. Can check on web site if miss during class.
SIGN IN PLEASE….. We have attendance sheets-please make sure you sign in Pick up a commitment / information sheet if you are proceeding with Dual classes and return to Mrs. Wallace ASAP.
OK- you’re interested but not sure.. What do you do now? Put the Dual class in your Skyward requests in your course selections (plus put in the other English class you might take as an alternate) Then you will be able to see both for ARENA scheduling.
THEN….. Bring back the commitment form with parent signature by FEBRUARY 26 ( the last day of course selection) BUT if you change your mind between now and your ARENA date – you can still take Dual out of your schedule. I will remove anyone with no commitment form or meeting on Feb. 27 th.
