Long term projects will usually have a rubric and a timetable that I will send home as well as post here. If your child falls behind on a project, he/she may have to work on it on the weekends. Most projects will be stored on Google and can be accessed through your child’s school gmail account. This allows them the ability to work anywhere they have internet access be it at home or at a public library. I will do my best to not put several tests or projects due on the same day..
With focus and effort, these projects should be completed in school. If the student falls behind, they will need to do some of the work at home.
