Spring Pre-Registration

Okay, on Thursday we are going to do more pre-registration for the Spring semester. Bring $30 and we will probably have you take turns going out of class and registering. Shoko will be in Rm. 24 to register anyone who needs to sign up for classes starting March 22. It's easier now because the lines are shorter!

Still turn in your homework.

I would still like to receive your homework if you haven't turned it in yet. Just write 2-3 paragraphs about your specific goals for learning Eglish this semester. I want to use this homework assignment to look back at toward the end of the semester.
