  • Classwork/Homework 

Students will take notes, participate in class discussions, complete hands-on individual and group activities. 

Homework: The homework for this class will be using the planner every day for each class. Other homework assigned for this class will relate to other academic classes taken by the student.  For example, an assignment may be for students to write down the late work policy for their other teachers. 

Parent Responsibilities: Parents can help promote good study habits by providing a homework routine for their children. Having students complete their homework in a designated area, away from interruptions, at a certain time every day can help students do their very best work.  It is helpful to encourage students to pack up their school things the night before so it is ready in the morning. These behaviors will reinforce what students are learning in class.

Google Classroom: Each week students will print materials needed for class from Google Classroom.
