Dear Future High School English Students,
Summer is waning,
Our hours be few,
‘Tis but a moment,
And then I’ll see you.
Fortunately, though, poetry is not among our topics for the new year. Research paper writing is, so play hard these last three weeks –you’ll be working hard come September 9.
I look forward to our year together! You’ll need The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation by Jane Strauss (if you have this from last year, you do NOT need a new copy.)
