We have many things to get through today being that we are preparing you for a virtual PAPERLESS class. Many field trips are already organized and there are dates I want to share with you as well.
First things first- say hello to your MacBook Pro- it is yours to use and make your own for the entire semester! Take one and write your name on a sticky note.
