Homework and Flex time

Parents,

This is a reminder that the only homework given in Social studies is extended learning and to study for tests (typically 2 per quarter). If students don't complete their weekly news update in class, than that could be homework as well as any unfinished in-class assignment, like a chapter reading/questions. 
Flex time may be a little different each day. Some days the entire period is used as a free work period where students can work on any assignment from any class. Other days, we spend some time working on social studies, then the rest of the time is a free period. Some days I work one on one or in small groups. Every day students have some free work time. During this free work time, I expect everyone to be on task and using their time wisely. Lately, many students would rather socialize or do something other than schoolwork. Please remind your children that it is important to use this flex time wisely to minimize the amount of time spent at home completing assignments.
Thank you, 
Ms. Church
