Tutoring Section

The most important aspect of making sure that each student is achieving to their best ability is to make sure that they are keeping up to date with the assignments in class. This includes the class work, projects, notes and readings. Each class has a container where extra copies of work, directions for projects and class copies of notes are located. 
I will attach work that students can make up if they miss assignments to this web page on the Monday after the assignment is due. If the assignment is on this webpage than it can be turned in for full or partial credit.
