Somehow the semester is almost over -- that went by fast! At any rate, MONDAY JANUARY 22nd will be the LAST DAY to turn in any missing work from Semester 1. Plan accordingly.

Stay strong --there are breaks on the horizon.
Regardless of your political leanings, this is major news.

Greetings -- in order to have accurate grades (and enough time for grading all of the work) for Quarter 1, I will not be taking any additional late work for Quarter 1 after November 1st. If you are missing anything, for any reason, it is up to you to meet with me and work out a plan prior to then.
