Hi there Class!

Monday the 20th is a school holiday, as we celebrate Martin Luther King JR. I will return all kmail and messages on Tuesday the 21st.

*Great job finishing up Term 2. I will get progress reports sent out by the end of this week or early next week.

*Term 3, your first semester ends next week (January 31st). Make sure that you are within the 40%-50% progress mark in all courses. If you are struggling, please contact me! Remember, I'm here to help :)

Quick Tip:

Java Update:

Recently, it has been announced that new version of Java has some known issues in regards to Blackboard Connect. It is highly suggested that you DO NOT update to the latest version of Java until further notice.

Enjoy your short week,
