    Talking Re: abbreviation

    there is nothing wrong with using abbreviation, of course. but if this is your everyweek schedule, you'd better say: we have math on sats, tues, ...
    (s) is added because you have this schedule every week

    Normally, these abbreviations are followed by a period. This sentence, however, is very informal. Were it formal, it would be better to spell out the days of the week. In a informal letter, it would be understandable with or without the periods.
