All issues will be stored in the Subscription Google Drive folder, which is accessible via a link that is in the PDF download from TpT.

This year, all articles will be published on Friday mornings so that you have time to load assignments for the coming week into your Learning Management System prior to the Friday afternoon deadlines held by many districts.
