Thursday, December 11th (PDD Day)
(Today is a PDD schedule)
Today in class we will have work time to continue working on the things we have began throughout the week. Here are the tasks that need to get done in class today.
1. Complete the notes on MARIJUANA AND THE BRAIN NOTES. We will follow-up and complete the discussion at the beginning of class on Friday.
2. Finish reading the MARIJUANA READING PACKET. This reading needs to be complete - with interactive notes - when you come to class on Friday.
Mark Your Calendar! Our substance abuse exam will take place on Friday, December 19th. I know there may be some of you who will not be at school becuase it is the last day before winter break, if at all possible I would HIGHLY recommend making arrangements to take this exam BEFORE winter break, as it is difficult to come back from a long break and take a test.
