Well? How did you make out? Top marks? Of course you did! If you’re unsure, go back and check out the posts from Week Two. This is an open blog test! (And you don’t even have to turn it in. Grade yourself and then pat yourself on the back!)

Okay, now you get a chance to kick back, and enjoy your weekend…or if you didn’t get a chance to go through all the KLSS posts yet, no worries, you can go back anytime and catch up! The new format to keep Saturdays free for you to take a breather is sizing up to be a big hit with KLSS students so go … go and do just that.

See you in Week Three!
