Philosophy of Learning
We are a community of learners. Whether we are learning math, language arts, science, etc. we are building our futures. Not everything that we encounter during the school day will be something that we can use immediately in our everyday lives, but everything that we encounter will help to build our knowledge foundation for the days, months, and years to come.
Strive to master each concept that you encounter. If you allow gaps to form in your knowledge and skills, the foundation that you lay today will be too weak tomorrow to support your future learning.

Assignments contribute toward building responsibility, self-discipline and lifelong learning habits, as well as, prepare students for upcoming assessments.
Assignments are not new learning and should enhance what the student has been working on in class.
Assignments may include the completion of work not finished in class, completion of daily assignments, review of concepts taught that day, working on a long-term project, and studying for upcoming assessments.
An assignment is not considered late until the student has left school for the day. Therefore, a student is welcome to turn in the assignment during Eagle Time PM or stay after school to finish current or late assignments.
Late assignments will be accepted for full credit until the day of the assessment for that unit. At that time, those late assignments will no longer be accepted and will remain a zero.
