    2. We will be on time (be in your seat and ready to work when the late bell rings).
    3. We will participate in class on a daily basis and we will be respectful to our fellow students.
    4. We will keep food out of the classroom and cell phones powered off and out of sight.
    5. See your teacher if you need extra help or if you need to make up an assignment.



    All grades are posted on Infinite Campus.  It is recommended for you to have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, in order to monitor your son/daughter's progress.

    Social Studies Department Homework Policy Rationale: 

    Homework helps students by complementing and reinforcing classroom learning, fostering good lifelong learning and study habits, and providing an opportunity for students to be responsible for their own learning. Regular homework contributes to the development of sound study habits and self-responsibility in children. It is a valuable means of fostering understanding and it serves as a communication link between school and home that shows parents what children are learning.
