Please provide your child with the necessary supplies. (pencils, paper, reading materials, etc.) Each student will need to sign the homework contract.
Students will be allowed to have a snack immediately upon entering after school. As soon as they are done with their snacks, they are to begin any homework that they might have (3:45 pm).
