#1 - Week 7 Vocab

We are ready for Week Seven of the SAT Vocab. 
Please update your Vocab Presentations.
- If you don't have access to your presentation, let me know.

#2 - Positive Impact Project (Day One)

We are starting a new project. I will tell you more about this project over the next week. 
First: You need to be part of a group of, at most, five people.
- Pick your group.
- Pick a group "secretary" 
- The group "secretary" needs to let Mr. Harmless know who is in your group.
Second: Brainstorm. 
- With your group, come up with a list of ways that students can have a positive impact on their school. 
- List ways that you have been impacted in a positive way. 
- List ways that you think might have a positive impact. 
- List areas where Danville High School might be in need of a positive impact. 
- The group "secretary" needs to write down (or type) all of the ways that are mentioned. 

Please try to have both of these things done by the end of the day today.
