Wednesday-Thursday, December 5-6, 2007

To all my wonderful students,

Funeral plans are coming together nicely. It's amazing how many people help you in difficult times. We've had so many people call and ask if they could help carry the load of the next few days. We are truly blessed to have so many friends and family.

Today, you will continue to use Mavis Beacon for typing lessons and games. Next week, we will assess your typing speed again to see if you have improved. We will also be learning proper hand placement on the keyboard as well as other important features of typing.

Remember to respect me, the sub, the room, and your neighbors this week. I'll see you all next week. Thanks for your prayers and support.

Mr. Aguda
