Below is a calendar of our weekly activities, assignments and tests dates.
Please be aware that the calendar may change as we move though the week as I adjust to student needs. The calendar will be ambitious at times and often we will not get everything done each week. I would much rather move slower and have the students "get it" then check off a box saying I covered all the information. That said; they will still need to work hard.
Parents, as your student works to master content material, there are some additional resources available as you see fit and may help with student success.
Please see on-line tools are available for parents and students below the weekly calendar.
