Annabel, Cagney, Cookie, Lacey, and Romeo Groups: History Test Update

Since so many students did poorly on last Thursday’s test, and there were several students who were absent when the test was given, I have decided that ALL students will be taking the test together on Tuesday, Feb. 21.  For the students who did well on the test the first time around, this is a great opportunity to see if they can improve their score. For the students who did poorly, consider this an opportunity to redeem yourself.

All students will take their test on this day.
