Homework

  • The majority of assignments are not nightly tasks due the next day. Instead, they are meant to be worked on over a period of time. This allows for students to learn to budget their time and still enjoy a life outside of school. Assignments consist of, but not limited to; essays, projects, studying, and culminating tasks.

    Please check your student's Google Classroom Account for up-to-date assignment and task listing. Likewise, refer to the calendar on the site for due dates as well.
