A few class notes...

Mid-Term Exam for AM class today.

PM Class:

Karen To Nakada will not be able to visit today as planned.
That means that today is a regular work day.

Advanced Students, new assignment: Please help me with the first year students today. If you can, check with a first year group and see if they need any advice or assistance. Walk the room and check with them about how their project is going. See if there are questions.

Also, you will have a free work day today ONLY if you have turned in the Steve Simpson and all previous projects. You will get a new assignment on Monday. Only 25% of the school year remains!

Practicum: I did not receive a portfolio link from everyone with updated work. I need to see ONLINE portfolios from ALL of you.

Some of you need to get busy on that.

PM class exam will be tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day.
