Third Six Weeks
To Kill a Mockingbird
Poke my beak to make me sing.
“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird
A day in which you have learned nothing is wasted.
If you need help or have a question, please come talk to me; I am available during most C lunches (let me know you are coming), or my conference period: A Day 4th period/B Day 6th Period. I am also willing to come in early and stay a little late if you will let me know ahead of time that you are coming.
