Plagiarism - What You Need to Know

Plagiarism is a serious issue since it's basically theft. You cannot "borrow" or steal people's ideas without giving proper credit. It does not matter if you accidentally plagiarize, or if you do it intentionally. If you don't give credit where credit is due, you have plagiarized. End of story. You MUST cite sources within the body of your paper AND in your Works Cited...even if you've paraphrased the original source.

This link will take you to a quick video tutorial about the different types of plagiarism:

Battle of the Books 2017-2018

Our 2017-2018 Battle of the Books competition was a huge success! While we did not bring home the trophy, our teams performed extremely well and went into the sudden death round in first and second place. Congratulations to this year's members.


On another note, we will have our annual ice cream party in early April. Also, we are going to hold a school-wide competition during a success tutorial period. Anyone who participated in the quiz, is invited to attend both. I will send an email by April 11th with the details and will pull you into the closed tutorial sessions.
