You will have homework on most days. This is to prepare you to have independent study habits needed in high school and life. I am available for help after school and we can talk during lunch.

It is important for you to be in school every day, unless you are seriously sick. If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to get the “missing work”. Ask for help after school. Do not ask for help during class. Depending on circumstance, you will have one week to pass in missing work.

Extra Help
I am available for extra help every Thursday, but you are always welcome to ask to come other days as well.
