    • Mrs. Rains says:

      Reading quiz deadlines never change for anything. If you got to check out the book, you have to take the quizzes. I’ll have to check on the date they were checked out, though. I’m thinking you weren’t here to get yours; if that’s the case, you’ll be fine.


    • Mrs. Rains says:

      Well, I can’t even talk right now without coughing a lung or two up, so I won’t be singing in the next few days. It’s killing me, too! I love singing!!

      I’m ready to hear you sing!

    Mrs. Rains,
    I’m unable to find the handout for the Romeo and Juliet quotes, i talked to you about this a few days ago and the link doesn’t appear to be on the list.
