Dear Mr. Long’s 10th graders,
Thanks for keeping me company all year.
You’ve been an amazing group of thinkers and writers, going far beyond (most weeks) what your teacher thought would happen. In other words, he’s been pretty impressed (no matter what impression he may have given along the way). And frankly, any one that might check out the blog (and what you wrote) would be, too!
So, here’s the deal:
I’ve decided to head off on summer vacation early. Craving a little down time and a decent virtual tan.
Plus, rumor has it that you guys have done an amazing job this year (and more than impressed Mr. Long along the way). Perhaps you could use a little extra time so that you can:
- finish A Tale of Two Cities (periods 1, 2 & 3)
- prepare for the semester exam in less than 2 weeks (good luck)
- just hang out a little (yup, even that is vital, too)
So, I’m out of here. And that means your days of being a 10th grade English blogger are successfully behind you. Congrats!
If you have any interest, feel free to swing on by next year when the soon-to-be 10th graders are trying to expand their minds, too.
Your wisdom, feedback, and hints would be really appreciated.
