•  Welcome

    I am so excited to get to know each and every one of you over the next couple of weeks. Although this year has not looked like any of us expected, I am dedicated, determined, and motivated to make this year great! 




    The first novel we will read is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.  

    Please obtain a copy of this novel by the second week of school.

    This book can be purchased online through amazon, target, walmart, barnes and noble, and ranges from 5.00$ - 10.00$ dollars.

    The Maricopa Public Library District's North Valley Branch (which is located on the campus at Boulder Creek High School) is great resource. Currently they are only offering curbside serviced, however, you can still checkout a hard copy version (when available) or checkout using their electronic resources. Please call the lirary with any questions. 

    I  will also attach a pdf version of the text to Canvas. 

    *Please contact me if you are unable to obtain a copy of The Outsiders
