Week 5 - Halftime

Wednesday will be the halfway point of the first quarter. Progress reports will be going home. Students are working hard, but there have been some issues with assignments not being turned in. If you see an assignment with a zero in skyward, it is because the assignment has not been turned in. I hope the weather starts to cool down and that everyone has a pleasant week. All the best.
