Remember, no class meeting this week EXCEPT for the 10:30-12:20 class. All other sections of class will eventually watch the video from the Teacher of the Year presentation unless you ATTEND the live presentation at 10:30-12:20 on Monday in BH 344..

If you can attend the 10:30-12:20 class, Bluemont 344, it will be more entertaining and will save you from watching the video of the Teacher of the Year presentation by Mrs Smoke.
