Due by 11:59pm on Friday, August 16th:

Send an email to me!  The required content for this email is to identify at least one personal and one classroom goal you want to accomplish over the course of your freshman year.  Once you've done that, anything else you include is up to you!  You can tell me about your experiences in English classes:  What have you liked about them?  What have you disliked?  I hope that you will give me an idea of what your freshman year looks like: extracurricular activities, sports, hobbies, your family situation, etc.  You may also want to let me know if you have any special circumstances in our class (For example, if your best friend is in the class, but you NEVER want to be in a group together, or if your ex is in here and you really don't want to be neighbors) or learning considerations (Do you have an IEP?  Do you identify as a specific type of learner?).   This email has no length requirement, so take whatever space you need.  You will earn full credit for this assignment if you:

               1.  Include at least one personal goal and one classroom goal. 

               2.  Include your first and last name and class period number in the email header/subject line.

               3.  Send the email from your @piedmont.k12.ca.us account.

               4.  Send it to me by 11:59pm on Friday, August 16th.

You cannot earn full credit if you neglect any of these four requirements.  There will be NO exceptions.
