Homework Policy, 7th grade.....

Homework is important to your success as a student.  I assign homework only when I believe it will help you learn the material I give you in class and gather up some points to help your grade.  It also gives you an opportunity think of questions to ask in class.  So, when I assign something,  I expect it to be completed and on time.  For this reason, any missed assignments will have to be done during the school day, on your time.  "taking a zero" will not be allowed.  Come see me if you are absent or are having trouble!

If it is not on time........

--You will have to come in during 5th period "experience" to complete the assignment

--If, after 2 days you do not come in, I will assign lunch detention

--If you do not report to lunch detention, I will assign after school detention

**Assignments that have to be made up in this manner will not  receive credit.**

I will consider any student's individual circumstances in granting any extension to the due date.  I realize things do come up and what may be good for one student may not be good for another.  I will decide each case individually and your reputation will play a key role in my decision.

Please, Please, Please.....

If there is ANYTHING you are not sure of, come see me BEFORE the assignment is due.  It is very difficult to sympathize with you if you come to me in a panic one minute before class starts!
