I will be out all day today for training.  Please complete all the pages in your packet.  If you finish, you may read-to-self, post a synthesizing comment on the blog, or complete more fraction work from your math textbook.

Also, the room layout is complete.  Please allow me some time to reconnect all the computers and work the kinks out of our new system.
