Students have to put phones away as well. . . only to use them during dismissal.I have an HTC 10: but I've come up with a neat idea:Instead of removing apps off my main screen, I creating several "pages" six to be exact and moved the apps to…See More

Just finished annual "30 Days To be A Better Man".
The activities were pretty much the same, with a few tweaks to the tasks.
I always revamp and re-edit my LOVE LETTER.
This time I took the plunge and learned a manual skill and changed the oil on my JEEP!!
I did not buy a straight razor, but had a my barber shave me .
