Due to pep rally and Valentine party I failed to post on Ascend, but there is no new Homework! Math test over Chapter 7 is tomorrow, Wednesday.
Valentine’s Day we celebrate the love we have for one another through Christ. Without Christ the word love wouldn’t even be in our vocabulary. Through my time as a teacher, I have learned a great deal from my students who showChrist love to one another. May your hearts be filled with love this season.
