Come with your Christmas story for extra credit if you did one.
Please remember to pay your kids for their tickets from Semester 1.  (I am paying my kids 10 cents a ticket.)
I'm thinking about having a spelling test each time when they come based on the words in the back of the binder.  What do you all think about this? There are different levels.

Classical Conversations & Human Anatomy will resume on Thursday, Jan 12, 2012.

CC- at my home.  9 a.m. to Noon.
Quarter 3 focus:  Chemistry & Artists

*  My husband has agreed to do the Chemistry Experiment from 9 to 9:30 a.m.

It is 15 minutes earlier than we have been meeting so far.
