Homework Schedule for: March 31 - April 4, 2014

You will find a daily list of homework here each Monday afternoon for the entire week. The list is subject to change based on any unexpected schedule changes, and/or whether or not students need more or less class time to master a given concept.
Parents, make sure your child is making the right choices by completing their homework on time! I give a homework demerit for each day that an assignment is late. As a reminder, if I take a homework assignment for a grade and it is not turned in on time, those students are choosing to earn a zero for the assignment.

You must have your child's ID and PIN number to use this program. If your child did not turn in an assignment for any subject or chose not to put their name on their paper, you will see that show up as a "Z" in the gradebook. The "Z" counts as a zero.

You can email me at: mimsp@mail.okaloosa.k12.fl.us if you have any questions. Thank you! - Mrs. Mims
