  • Students will be assigned math homework Monday
    thru Thursday. Occasionally, a math assignment
    or project will need to be completed over the
    weekend. The homework will be checked and/or
    collected and graded for completeness (100
    effort) and neatness. To receive credit for the

  • All students will be issued an agenda. This is
    an important tool for success during the middle
    school years. Homework assignments will be
