*October 14th is the last day of the 1st quarter and all work must be completed by 5:00 pm.

What assignments do I turn in to my teacher?

Many times the OLS will instruct students to turn in assignments that do not have to be turned in. The only assignments that must be turned into your homeroom teacher are those that have "TGA" or "Writing Sample" beside it on the On Track Calendar.
