Your first assignment is due next week. Begin working diligently as lates will hurt you during mini quizzes and exams individualized to your novel.
(If for some insanely horrible reason you do not have a book at this time- Make your way to the library, find a book and GET MOVING! Find a book you love, something that will challenge you. You have a 3 day weekend- get the first half of this book completed.)

I honestly believe for you guys there are more opportunities in the world than ever before. The sky is not even the limit with your generation. I am proud of each and every one of you. We will be continuing with NewCap Television, pick up some more time with The City and anything else you want to do within the classroom or community- let’s make it happen. Each of you is capable of great things. An incredibly innovative man passed away this week, Steve Jobs- I know we discussed his passing in class already but: “Do you have the capabilities to change the world?” The answer to this question is YES. Thank you Steve Jobs for all you gave us, we use your creations each and everyday within our classroom and our lives. Let his personal legacy live on through you as you work hard, try new things, create the impossible and make magic happen. Have an incredible Thanksgiving and I will see all of you Tuesday. Take some time this weekend to pat yourself on the back and think ahead at your future- because it is your’s to master, mold, create and share.
