•There are no homework assignments.  However, students often need to complete class assignments at home.

•Students should study their assignments nightly, as needed.  Quiz and test scores should be the determining factor in regards to the amount of time spent studying.

Positive Behavior

Discipline will vary with the seriousness of the transgression. Generally, a student in violation of the rules will receive a warning. On the fourth warning parent contact will occur. The fifth violation will result in an office referral.

Text Book Policy

Texts, composition books, and workbooks are required in class each and every day. To ease the burden on the students, I allow them to leave their texts in my class when they do not need them at home. I do not, however, take responsibility for their books. To leave a book in my class, your child needs to place a book cover on the text with his or her full name written in bold on the spine.
