For the 2013-2014 School Year
Unless a student is absent from class, all work is completed in class. Extra time is given in school to complete assignments. All students need to keep a separate folder for this class. All assignments are graded and returned. Further, all tests, quizzes, writing assignments, and projects are also returned to the students. These items should be kept in their folders along with any hand-outs.
