Middle School Literature

Homework Policy

Fostering a rich literature experience, Jr. High students take a journey in the world of books.  With large group introductions and small group instruction, students work to enrich their minds with different genres of literature.

Moving through poetry and short plays help our students to gain self confidence as they take on different characters and scenes.

Learning in Literature is a rich experience for our Jr. High students.

All late work will be accepted one day late for half credit. All late work after that day will still be graded, but will not count for any points. If a student is absent, they have the same amount of days that they are absent to turn in their homework.
