No Homework Left Behind!

Did you miss a class because you were sick?  Had a Doctor's appointment?  Well, here is the spot where you can see what you missed.  You or your parents can even print out the assignment at home, complete it, and turn it in the next day you return.  Just click on the day to find out what we did during the week!


*Assignments are for the current week only, and assignments are not posted ahead of time.  For example, if the day is Monday, you cannot access Tuesday thru Friday's assignments ahead of time.  Conversely, if today is Friday, you may access the entire week's worth of assignments.  Previous week's schedules are cleared on Monday morning of the following week.  Older assignments must be retrieved from Mr. Clolinger in class.
