Thanks to a few of you (Xena, Alice, and Solina) the fact that I am human and make mistakes has once again been revealed. I posted the incorrect version of The Odyssey on my website for you all to read. Below is the proper (Greek names) version. DO NOT fret! If you have read the Roman version, the story is essentially the same, minus the name changes.

Again, my sincere apologies!
Juniors, attached is your summer reading/summer homework from your English teacher next year, Mrs. Bailin. Please advise.

Howdy Everyone! For those of you who had Ms. Stroup AND Mr. LaPorte, please make sure, whether you are taking English II-Honors or English II, that you read The Odyssey before school begins next year. Attached is a pdf copy. However, if you feel inspired to do so and/or you enjoy actually holding a print copy of books as opposed to reading an electronic version, feel free to check out a copy from your local library. For the mythology enthusiast, you might consider purchasing a copy of Homer’s epic.
When you all return, you will have an activity (exam) that covers the content in The Odyssey. Below is a link to a pdf copy.
