On Feb. 2, Carlmont hosted a large number of substitute teachers because English teachers were out of class grading fifteen hundred student essays.

An all school writing assessment took place in the last week of January. This assessment was for teachers to see where their students stand in the writing category of the English standards.

When asked what he thought of the essay, Tony Carini said, “I just went in there, I wrote and I had some time afterward. It was easy.”

This essay is in preparation for students to take the EAP in their junior year. The EAP is a standardized timed writing assessment that determines whether students are successfully passing the standards that are required of students for college.

“I went in with no planning and an open mind, so I could write about any topic [Ms. Clarke] gave us, and telling us to take our time on the prompt really helped,” said Melinda Highton.
