Homework is important for reinforcing information and strategies learned in class.  Homework is usually assigned 1-2 nights per week.  It is collected at the beginning of the class, checked for accuracy, and gone over to clarify information. Homework is worth 10% of the quarterly grade.


    Homework should be marked in planners daily. We complete this as a class. If there is no homework, students should be reading self-selected materials.


    Things to do daily: Read independent book. Study vocabulary (Word of the Day). Study current notes. Work on quarterly project.



    Students who are absent can check the homework board on the district website. Click on Middle School and then clock on the 8th grade homework link. In addition, check Google Classroom to see if there is anything that can be done before returning. This way your child won't get behind or have to give up Intervention time.  Students should also check with me upon return for work missed and any necessary handouts.  You may call for work if your child will be out longer than one day.







    Extra Credit is available on a daily basis. Students are instructed at the beginning of the year on options for receiving extra credit. There are a variety of activities depending on student interest, and each assignment is awarded points depending on level of difficulty and student performance.
