Are you kidding me????????

I don't even want to try to calculate the odds for U-High having three snow/weather day cancellations in succession. I am sure that will be a nearly once in a lifetime occurrence for all of us.

The long lay-off has been enjoyed by many of us, but we should be back in school on Tuesday! make sure that you have completed the assigned HW for each class.

In College Algebra, we will pick-up with our discussion of radian measures of angles and their relation to the unit circle.

In Accl. Geometry, we will continue our discussion of the properties of various quadrilaterals.

Enjoy the extended break ... we'll see everyone Tuesday ... HOPEFULLY!!!!!!!
