We are ending our first trimester and grades are being entered soon. Please check with your teachers for missing assignments and other goals you need to finish, especially AR reading. 
Most kids get poor grades in Language Arts because they are not meeting their AR goals. These goals are set to improve your abilities in reading AND count for a large portion of your class grade...So, read your AR books. 
*** AR reading is done in my advisory now every day for at least 10 minutes.
