Sorry Not Sorry! Moos Edition!

This week we read the delectable “This Is Just To Say” by William Carlos Williams, in which he expertly maneuvers the “sorry, not sorry” faux-apology. As enjoyable as Williams’ poem is, it is even more fun to find out what our darling students are secretly not sorry about (mostly really delicious food). Enjoy!
