Welcome to our Virtual School Year!

Welcome to another school year and welcome to Ms. Antonacci’s American Literature course! Things will certainly look and feel very different this year, but I look forward to having you in my class! My blog will be updated daily with what we do in class, as well as additional resources. Please be sure to bookmark this page so you can access it easily throughout the semester.

HLThEPnA few things you must do in order to set yourself up for success this semester:

  1. Visit CTLS Learn and this blog daily, especially if you miss class – getting missed work due to absences is the responsibility of the student (you)!
  2. Sign up for Remind! PLEASE! Life gets busy and we all need reminders. Download the app or text the following code (including @) to 810-10
    1. First period: @msaamlit1
    2. Fourth period: @msaamlit
  3. Come to school! Seriously. According to the Indiana Partnerships Center, missing only two days of school per month lowers both your test scores and your chances of graduating high school. In a virtual setting, this is even more important. We have A LOT to make up for since March!
