Thursday, November 11th

Today, we would like to respectfully observe Remembrance Day, where those who lost their lives in, to and for conflict are remembered by those who lived and endure.

History of the Poppy
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est [Latin for “It is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country“.]

Pro patria mori. (Owen, Wilfred, Dulce et Decorum Est)

Booked Classes

Mr. Furguile’s ENG2D class will be coming into the Library today to talk about Memoirs.

Memoirs are amazing works of writing that look at one’s own life. For this assignment, students will need to find a memoir to read and explore.

Ms. Karasan will be working with you today to show you a great list of memoirs and help you find one you’re interested in.


Below, you’ll find the slideshow presented in class about the importance of the Memoir.
