Hi everyone.  Sorry I have not been in class for the last week.  Here's what is going on for the rest of the semester.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday:  You will be working on the Final Exam review sheet.  This is a large packet and you will have the rest of the week to work on it.  Bring your book each day.  The review sheet is due the day of finals and I will give extra credit if you have it completed.  Plus, you may get points for working diligently in class during this time. 

Your finals are next week.  We will start second semester by finishing up Unit 4.  Will will have a Unit 4 test sometime within the first two weeks of second semester.    So do not lose any of your materials for this unit.  Unfortunately, I will not be collecting notebooks at this time, but will do so early next semester.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at any time.

See you soon.

Mr. J
