Week 3 Milestones Begin!!!

Milestones begin on Tuesday:


During this time we will be on an altered schedule, so all classes do NOT meet each day.   I will not be posting a daily schedule for the classes as it will vary depending on which classes are meeting.

I will not be assigning any homework this week. However, each night I will post a Quizzizz Code for one Quizzizz Game.  You may play using your first and last name only.  Do not use nicknames or inappropriate identifyers.  If you are in the top 5 for that night’s quiz, then you will earn 30 Survivor Bucks.    The code will be posted on the night of that game.  It is available for only that night and will close at 11:45pm!
