Homework and Assignments

Our philosophy about homework is this. We work our students hard while they are in class. We believe families are quite busy outside of school so any homework your child might have from us should not take more than 30-45 minutes to complete. Here are our standard homework assignments.
1. If a student does not finish the assignment in class then they have
homework. Most work is due the following day.
2. From time to time we will have projects which will require time spent at home working on them.
3. No extra credit given. Students have the opportunity to make up
assignments and tests with 79% or less within 10 days.

Assignments:

1. When a student is absent it is their responsibility to ask for assignments. The student has the number of days absent to make up work. (Parents can call in the morning and request homework when a student is absent)
2. Late work needs to be turned in timely. Work that is later than ten days will receive a Zero.
3. Study/Make up sessions are available before and after school most days from 3:00-3:40. Check with individual teachers.

We are looking forward to a great year with your students.
