    Posted:  May 15, 2020

    I praise the majority of my students who heeded my advice in avoiding procrastination, for most of the second round of CLA's, i.e. numbers eighteen through twenty-three, have already been received.  Emails were sent to those whose CLA's were sent and received successfully.

    Students are reminded that I will accept CLA's eighteen through twenty-three by 11:59 P.M. today.  

    Stay diligent, positive, and productive.  :)

  • Announcement #8

    Posted:  May 7, 2020

    Some have emailed me regarding the posting of assignments in Progress Book.  Having a plethora of assignments to read and of which to verify the completion, I ask for continued patience.  Knowing that there would be a period of waiting for my students after their submission of CLA's three through seventeen, I posted an announcement (i.e. #7) on my webpage on Sunday, May 3. 

    To reiterate the information in Announcement #7, I successfully received all CLA's that were completed by the first deadline of May 1, i.e. CLA's three through seventeenThus, any student who submitted those CLA's by the May 1 deadline can rest assured that their work was received.  The only students whom I contacted were the ones whose CLA's could not be opened electronically, and those students diligently and commendably complied by trying another means, e.g. a different type of email attachment.  I only had to contact a few students regarding said occurrence, and all issues were rectified, thus allowing me to receive CLA's successfully after the second attempts were made.  

    Students are reminded that CLA's eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, and twenty-three are due by May 15.  Some students have already completed and sent them to me, thus remaining diligent and productive in completing CLA's during the week when they are assigned.  I appreciate that effort, for it allows me to read and verify CLA's progressively rather than having all of them sent to me on the actual deadline.  Students are encouraged to avoid procrastination and complete work during the week when it is assigned.  

    I will be entering completed CLA's into Progress Book at five points each; thus, a total of 105 points will accrue regarding the fourth quarter.  

    Regarding students' borrowed copies of The Grapes of Wrath, those items may be placed in one of the bins but NOT the "pick-up only" bin in front of T-VHS.  For students who plan to submit their work in paper form, they are reminded NOT to place CLA's eighteen through twenty-three in the "pick-up only" bin but should place their completed work in one of the other bins.  Moreover, I will continue to place students' three-ring binders in the "pick-up only" bin upon request.  

    Thank you, 

    Mr. Prince

    Posted:  May 3, 2020

    Students who submitted CLA's via email or by means of the bins in front of T-VHS are informed that their assignments have been received by me.  CLA's three through seventeen are past due; therefore, students should now focus on completing the remaining CLA's relative to the 2019-2020 academic year.

    The next deadline, applying to CLA's eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, and twenty-three, is May 15.  Students may submit their assignments either electronically or stored in sealed bags next to the front entrance of T-VHS.  One of those bins is labeled "pick up only", so students should place their remaining CLA's in one of the other bins.  Students are reminded that the remaining CLA's (i.e. numbers eighteen through twenty-three) must be sent electronically to my school email address:

    Students are reminded to write (legibly) the CLA number as part of the heading of each assignment.  No credit will be awarded to any assignment that lacks the correct CLA number. The option of typing CLA's still applies.

    Stay diligent and productive.  :)

    Mr. Prince

    Posted:  April 30, 2020

    Some students have been submitting CLA's 18, 19, and 20 during this week, and that is acceptable.  So that all students are informed, the due date for CLA's 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23 is May 15.  CLA's 21, 22, and 23, which will be assigned next week (May 4-8), will be the last three CLA's that students will be required to complete for College Preparatory English 11.  


  • Announcement #5

    Posted:  April 27, 2020 (as an addendum to Announcement #4)

    Any student, who plans to submit CLA's (three through seventeen) by May 01 by means of the bins near the front entrance of T-VHS, is required to e-mail me regarding the date on which he or she plans to submit said items.  This will allow me to obtain the CLA's expeditiously.  

    Thank you.

    Posting Date:  April 27, 2020

    Re:  Submission of CLA’s Assigned from March 16 to April 24

    Earlier today, the administration at Tri-Valley conveyed a directive to teachers regarding the collection of CLA’s, and the following guidelines are established as to how that procedure will transpire.

    All assignments from March 16 to April 24 are due by 11:59 P.M. on May 01.  The administration wants assignments submitted electronically; therefore, I am requiring that students send CLA’s to my school email address, which is  Keeping this procedure as uncomplicated as possible, I expect students to write the proper heading on each CLA, in addition to the number of the CLA.  Students can do this by simply referring to each assignment’s posting on my webpage.  Any assignment(s) that lack(s) the proper heading will not earn credit.  As has been done since the beginning of this school year, an assignment’s heading must be written above the actual assignment (not in a corner of a page).  Thus, CLA’s three through seventeen are due by May 01.

    All assignments must be sent electronically and by the deadline.  Any work that was assigned from March 16 to April 24 that is sent on or after May 02 will not earn credit.  To reiterate, May 01 is the official deadline as determined by Tri-Valley’s administration. 

    Though no students since March 16 have contacted me regarding a lack of Internet access, I still afford any student an opportunity to submit assignments in paper form.  The Tri-Valley Administration has informed teachers that assignments may be submitted in sealable bags and placed in bins that are located near the front entrance of Tri-Valley High School.  Students are instructed to write their first and last names (no abbreviations) and the name of the class on the outside of said sealable storage bags.  Moreover, any student who emails me and requests his or her three-ring binder may retrieve it in one of those bins. 

    Students are encouraged to avoid procrastination and send their assignments no later than April 30 so that they have ample time to seek an alternative means for submitting CLA’s should an unexpected electronic “issue” occur. 

    I convey my best regards to all of my students and their families. 

    Mr. Prince

  • Announcement #3

    In accordance with a directive issued by the administration at Tri-Valley High School, teachers of said building are assigning three CLA's during the two weeks that encompass Easter.  Therefore, I am posting one CLA during the week of April 6-10 and two during the subsequent week, i.e. April 13-17.  

    Hereafter, all CLA's will be grammar-based as a means of review.  Students' borrowed copies of The Grapes of Wrath will be returned prior to May 20; a designated date and time will be conveyed by means of an announcement on this webpage.  

    Happy Easter, juniors.  


    Mr. Prince


  • Announcement #2: Posted on March 30, 2020

    Pending students' return to classes after May 01, the essay prompts relative to The Grapes of Wrath will be provided on the date of return.  In the meantime, students should keep their annotations, which could be used during their writing of Major Essay #4.  

  • Announcement #1

    The assigned readings on the syllabus relative to The Grapes of Wrath must be completed during the three-week hiatus (March 16 to April 3).  If classes at Tri-Valley resume on April 6, then a two-day application, scheduled for said date and April 7, will occur during class.  The 100-point mastery exam is scheduled for April 8; the thirty-point quiz scheduled for March 24 will not be rescheduled.  Major essay number four will be assigned on April 6 and will be due on April 15.  Late essays will not be accepted.

    The in-class writings that would have occurred, if classes would have been in session during the aforementioned hiatus, now represent CLA's.  Therefore, CLA's three, four, and five will be assigned per the readings that are scheduled on the syllabus for the week of March 16 to 20.  By March 21, students must check this website so that they can procure subsequent assignments that correspond to the readings on the syllabus.  All CLA's (writing assignments) are due on the first day of classes after the three-week hiatus (i.e. April 6), and  they (CLA's/writings) must be either stapled or paper-clipped together.  Students may not work together regarding these assignments.  Any two (or more) assignments that are identically or similarly worded will earn no credit.  Moreover, late work will not be accepted.

    As college-intending students, you all are expected to continue your academic responsibilities regularly/daily during this three-week hiatus and diligently avoid procrastination, for classes are still a priority -- just of a different form and by means of an alternative approach.  

    Please e-mail me at if there are any questions regarding the assignments from March 16 to April 3; also, check this webpage regularly for any changes and/or or updates.  

    Take care,

    Mr. Prince
