Wednesday 10/23

Tutors Present: Haley, Jake, Abby and Dan (sub)

The first study hall after the lock down lifted was quiet.  We had maybe 1/3 the number of students than usual and mostly usual suspects.  It was too bad more students weren’t present but for those of us who usually negotiate SUCH a busy night, the slow pace was a nice break and we had an opportunity to spend a bit more time with students.

Since classes hadn’t yet met students were working on a variety of assignments.  

Students: Vick, Leroy, Carlos, Emile, Long , Eric, Benjie, Floyd Hall, James, Genovese, Jerome, Jason, Rudy, and probably a few others.
