Paragraph we re-wrote in class (p. 31):

Nichole drove her car to school.  She parked it in the front lot.  She was late, so she ran to her first block without getting a pass from the office--a clear violation of school policy. When she got to first block, she found that she was later than she thought--the lunch bell rang.
