  • Homework

    Homework assignments will mostly be online through Google Docs. If an assignment is paper, it will be upload to Google Classroom either by scanning or taking pictures of the worksheets. All students must submit a picture or scanned copy of their work to receive full credit. If a student does not have Internet at home, he or she can come to my room to work on the assignments in the morning.
