Writing Help: 

 Writing assignment due before Christmas?  Up against a college application deadline?  Or maybe you're writing a letter to Santa. (Is that still a thing?)  Why not stop by the Learning Commons during your lunch period to get some help with your writing? Mr. Velten, a retired ELA teacher, will be in the Learning Commons today to give you the help you need. 

So bring that paper or essay in, and get some help to improve your sentences, make your thesis more clear, and brush up those spelling and punctuation problems! Once again, see Mr. Velten for writing help today in the Learning Commons.  Last chance for 2019! See you next year, or should I say next decade!"


And finally…  

Santa's elves are just a bunch of subordinate Clauses.
