    Homework

    • Students are given a 100% in each subject at the start of every new marking period for their homework grade.  As long as homework is completed with their best effort, your child will keep his/her 100%. Students' homework percentage will be posted biweekly in each Subject in Skyward. If a student misses a homework assignment 5 points are deducted from their homework grade. If a student is absent they are expected to make up missed homework. Parents/Guardians will be notified after three missed assignments. Major papers or projects handed in after the deadline will have ten points per day deducted.
