    Updates during school closure:

    Hello readers and authors! There are currently no required assignments at this time, but please check back weekly for information. Maybe a book suggestion, application links to educational material, jokes (not my own because I am not all that funny), puzzles, and more!

    Stay Kind. Be well.

    Mrs. Boston

    "And what are you reading, Miss-?"

    "Oh! it's only a novel!" said the young lady... "in short, only some book where there is genius, knowledge of the human heart, the best picture of it, and wit, and funniness is given to us in the best words."

    ~ Jane Austen
