AR Reading

Syllabus Signature Page Signed:  Due 01/11/19

Vocabulary Quiz:  01/11/19 (Words are in Canvas)

Suggested nightly activity:  Students should review the notes they took in each of their classes to review and revise them.  This helps students to process the information they learned in class, access the information in a different way, and to help learn it in a way that will help them remember it.

Please encourage your children to track their assignments in their agendas and turn all assignments in on time.
