April 6th

Lizandre: if you read this could you email me and tell me you are working on the Anne Frank Diary study? I feel like we are on separate wave-lengths and I'd like to get organized. I trust everyone
else is doing okily-dokily. Report cards come out on this Thursday I believe. The mark on the report card will only reflect work up to and including the SOAPSTone assignment. All the Anne Frank
work we're doing is going on to the next report card. As always let me know if you have any questions or need assistance.

April 7th
A number of you have not submitted all of your assignments to me, e.g. pre-reading questions, personal reading diary, and the chapter end questions. Braden, Taylin and Lizandre need to look into this. If
any of you are unsure about whether you've submitted these assignments or not you should just resend.
