    Today is the first day of Quarter 3.  I will upload my grades for Quarter 2 by Wednesday.  If you have anything to turn in for Quarter 2, tomorrow is the final day to take late assignments or any extra credit!  Please see if you have anything missing or if you are on the border and extra credit would help to raise your grade.  You are in control of the grade you get based on the effort that you put in!
