    Class Work

    The majority of work in done in class.  Students will not have homework unless they fail to complete work done in class on a timely basis.  The curriculum is designed to help the student achieve success so that he/she may pass the foreign language requirement.  Students are therefore encouraged to put forth their best effort so that they may achieve this goal.  I am available for tutoring after school from 2:30 – 3:15 p.m.


    Make-up policy


    It is the student’s responsibility to turn in any class work due to absence.  It is also their responsibility to get any worksheets that they have missed.  Students have the number of days of the absence to make up the work.  Example:  If you are absent one class period, you have one class period after you return to turn in absent work.
