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

then send me an email @ mike_costello@ddsd40.org

Hey guys, 
I know this is the first time having a sub for my class this year, please treat them with as much/more respect, as you do me. I'm not expecting any problems, you guys are all good classes.
If he writes your name down as misbehaving, you will get a detention :) so don't do it
