Mr. Pocernich



 Updated March 20, 2020

Obviously, the current situation in education and the world has changed the way things look here in Cromwell-Wright Schools. I will continue to update this site weekly, beginning again on March 30, unless things change before then.. Additionally, you can expect the following from me:
1) I will communicate with each student in my classes via email daily.
2) All assignments will be posted, turned in, and graded in Schoology.

If you need anything from me, you can email or call me via the contact information listed below.

English 11/12 (American Literature):  Students are continuing the study of Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken.  Students should be through Part IV by Monday, March 30.

Contemporary Literature:
 Students should have finished the novel Feed by M.T. Anderson by Monday, March 30 

Practical Writing:
 Students wrote their first in a series of 4 topical writes. 

English 10: Students finished a unit on Creative Writing. Their collection, called a chapbook, should be submitted to me by March 30.

English 9: Students finished the reading of John Steinbeck's ​The Pearl. ​They should have their chapter 5 and 6 study guide submitted to me by March 30.

Every Class, Every Day: 

Additionally, each day our class period begins with a "bellringer" activity. The students will complete an activity with the primary purpose of relating to informational text.

Please check your child's progress in my class through PowerSchool or Schoology. I update my grades in Schoology, as assignments are turned in. All grades in Schoology are current to the second. I sync my Schoology grades with PowerSchool weekly (usually every Monday) if not more frequently. This is a great way to see how your child is performing in my classes as well as check if they have any missing work. 

If, at any time, you have questions or need assistance, please contact me at the phone number or email below. Email is the preferred method to use during school hours, so as not to interrupt class:
