CCEL Students,

I’m really excited about Valentine’s Day on Monday. Come to my office at break time or lunch time to buy a $3 valentine for a special “friend”.  I will deliver the valentine to classes in the afternoon.

Check out the schedule for next week. It’s hockey time.

Ohh and check out the great group photo from Queen Elizabeth Park. We thought we saw Tom Cruise, but it was just the set for the TV show Smallville. Bummer….

Have a great weekend!
