Welcome Back!

Hello my new students, and all your parents! I am so excited to join the IBSH community, and am looking forward to all the great books we'll be reading this year. AP 12th graders: Be ready for a reading test over Oedipus Rex, Moby Dick, and Brave New World. College Prep 10th graders: Our first unit will be on The Crucible, a wonderful play by Arthur Miller. English Conversation students...get ready to talk!

This website is vital to your success in my class, most importantly as a place to get information about assignment due dates (see the calendar below).

Now that you're here, please follow these directions carefully:

1. Email me (ruth.andronica@gmail.com) from where you want me to send reminders or handouts. Ideally, this is the student's address.
2. In the subject of the email, write your class name: either AP, 10A, 10B, or Conversation.
3. In the body of your email, copy and paste the following and fill it out:

Student Name:

Parent Names (include titles):

Parent Email:

Parent Phone Number:

4. I expect to receive all these emails by September 3rd at 5 pm. The "Teacher/Student/Parent agreement" page is due on September 4th in class.
