Course Description

Welcome to 11th Grade English with Mr. Polish! Our class will meet every Tuesday from 11 am – 12 pm and your attendance there is required. Because we only meet one day a week, it is important that you maintain communication with me by e-mail if you are having any issues with me, school, or the work. My e-mail is bpolish@champscharter.org and I check it every day so expect me to get back to you no more than 24 hours after you have messaged me.
