We need to have some Mock Trial meeting/practices that are not class time. We just don't have time to get through the mock trial during class, plus I need parents to stand in as the opposing role. I would like to schedule our first extra practice for the week of April 4th-8th. Can you tell me the best times that are available for your families?..........and maybe what day/times absolutely wont work? I am aware that this will put a cramp on everyone's schedule/time so I will try to work with everyone as best as I can. I could add it on the end of the CC day if that is easier for everyone, BUT I will need yall or at least some to come up and help stand in for roles. Please let me know though so I have a clue when to schedule for.

Thank You

Thank you all for understand about the Science Fair, and Tuesday. I am finally better and feeling normal again. I haven't been that sick in a long time! I appreciate all the calls/texts to check on me. They were much appreciated!!
