Homework Policy and Links

Our homework policy is explained below:

  • Students are expected to complete a math worksheet each night. It is one page, but contains problems for each night of the week, Monday-Thursday. The worksheet will be given out on Mondays and is “due” each following day. It will be turned in officially on Fridays. (Click here to see an example of what the math homework will look like.)
