Homework: It is for your benefit. When I assign homework, please write down the assignment in your student planner. Homework receives full credit if it is completed and/or handed in at the beginning of the class period and demonstrates your best effort.
Students are responsible for completing all assignments, homework, and projects in a timely manner. Assignments not completed will receive a grade of zero. Late assignments will be given a grade of 50 if completed within a week.PARENTS:
