  1. Hello students, I hope you had a happy new year and an enjoyable break. All kickoffs are now graded. Some of you continue to do a great job on your writing and getting all kickoffs done. Others… not so much. You can log into Focus to see your grades.
    We have one more week of classes before Final Exams begin on Monday, Jan. 14. I’ll have more information on final exams by the middle of this week. Welcome back.
