You are required to submit responses in requested formats for two titles.  You will be credited for your work due the first week of school.  Remember neatness, organization, and overall presentation count with all Tighe school assignments and present a "first impression" of you as a student to your teachers and our staff.  It is preferred you "keyboard"  your reponses to also keep your keyboarding skills sharp.  All Tighe students should use their Google Drive to upload and complete responses.  Don't forget to check your Google Drive "shared with me" link for directions and/or grade level template.
