We will eat again when we return.  Students are asked to have a filling breakfast and first lunch.

Homework this week: Students did not receive a set assignment last week. This week we will be working on a persuasive speech. While students will have sometime in class, they may need to complete some research and writing at home. Speeches will be presented to class next week.
