UPDATE: January 19, 2021

All back-ordered titles have been delivered and are ready for pick up.

Original message sent January 15, 2021:

Dear Central Academy English Students and Families,

Second Semester novels for English classes are ready for pick up starting on Monday, January 18, 2021 from 8 AM – 4 PM.  (Offices will be open on MLK day, even though there are no classes.)  Second Semester starts on Monday, January 25.   The novels have been labeled with student names and sorted by class.

To make this process easier for families, we have a book for every student enrolled in an English class. We will automatically add the book fee to Infinite Campus for you– you don’t have to place an order.  If your family qualifies for a Textbook Fee waiver or fee reduction, we will automatically waive or reduce the cost of these books.  Then, after most materials have been picked up, we will contact the families who have not picked up their novels and either figure out how to get the novels to you OR remove the fee from Infinite Campus.  If you do not want the books, please contact to remove the fees.

Book List:

  • Accelerated English Lang. & Lit. I (8th Grade): Night ($5) and Midsummer Night’s Dream ($4)
    • Night is back ordered.  Despite the order being placed in October the publisher is promising it will be delivered by Jan. 22. We’ll let you know as soon as it comes in.
  • Accelerated English Lang & Lit II (9th grade): Hiroshima ($6) and Romeo & Juliet ($3)
  • Accelerated English Lang & Lit III (10th grade): The Great Gatsby ($8)
  • College English Language & Comp (11th Grade): No new novels this semester
  • College English Literature & Comp (12th Grade): Woman Warrior ($9) and a play assigned by the teacher ($9)
    • There are five play titles– they all cost the same and your teacher decides which play you will be assigned.
    • One of the five play titles is back ordered despite being ordered in October.  The publisher is promising it will be delivered by Jan. 22.  We’ll let you know as soon as it arrives.
