How to turn in assignments...

If you ever get 1 point on an assignment, it is probably because you did not share it properly and I cannot view it

If you are turning in late work, you need to turn it in using the original link
then send me an email @ mike_costello@ddsd40.org

Example:
Mr. Costello,
I just wanted to let you know I turned in the __________ assignment late. I apologize for being a slacker, 
and not getting it done on time :)

Thanks,
Joe Student
