Last Week of the Quarter

This is the last week of the quarter! Make it count!

Blitz Day

I’ve heard a lot of good feedback on Blitz Day so far, but we want to hear what your thoughts and suggestions are in order to keep making it better and better.  Please leave your feedback on the padlet at this link  All comments must be appropriate or the comment will be removed and the student will be reprimanded.
