April 23- May 3*

AP Exam looms closer. Students shift into high gear in both AP Prep and Hamlet. Lear is cut short, largely due to last week's field trip. Hamlet will overrun past the vacation in 3 of 4 sections - additional segments applied. Deep reading was preformed with the 3rd Soliloquy and the station lesson when well but written results are disappointing.
