Remind Text Alerts:
    If you want to keep up with what’s going on in English this year, you should think about signing up for our text alerts.  I will try to send out weekly reminders about upcoming due dates, tests, campus reminders, etc.  These text messages are set up through a third party.  I will never see your phone number and you will never see mine.  Please keep in mind that this is a one way service. Responding texts will not be received.
    Are you a parent or student in AP English Literature (Seniors)?  Text @aplit2512 to 81010
    Are you a parent or student in AP English Language (Juniors)?  Text @aplang2512 to 81010
    You can also keep up with what's going on in class through Twitter.  Follow me @MsSpenceAHS for reminders and class info.  Also feel free to tweet me your questions!  I will respond as soon as I can.

    Students can check out the literature textbook for the year from Gold 2.  A textbook request form with a parent signature must be turned in with the request in order to check out a textbook.  Currently, there is no online version of the textbook.
