    Students will have access to all their assignments in their Microsoft Teams/Class Notebook. It is my intention of supplying the same information here for parents/guardians in order to keep up with their children.

    I expect students to write down their homework in their agendas at the start of each class. However, I will be listing the week's classwork and homework assignments here as a place to make sure these assignments are being completed.

    The "Notes & Worksheets" section will have copies uploaded. This may also be useful to students in the event they are absent. You may have to scroll down past the list of "Classwork & Homework Assignments" to see this. Items not appearing there are copyright protected and can not be posted online.
