IMPORTANT: Homework Next Week

We will be starting to experiment with several of the websites that we use at school as options for homework as well. Please do your best to log your students into the required sites. Students WILL NOT be penalized if they cannot get logged in. We will have paper copies of the math assignment available to them should the websites not work. Please email with any concerns once you start receiving and trying the assignments.


A colored page with a list of student passwords will be sent home today (Friday). Feel free to have students try to log in to the various sites. The following sites will have things that they can complete whenever they want. I am sending home two copies per student. If there are two households that the student will be completing homework at, please send one copy to the other home before next week.
