About 1/3 of our class was missing today, so please talk with me about what you missed.
The class decided that it wouldn't be a good idea to move full speed ahead in the text with so many people absent. As a result, the class was given 20 minutes to complete the last part of the Third Quarter Reflection assignment. Be sure that you go online and make sure that the goals you set for 3rd quarter are appropriate for 4th quarter.
