Homework = Tech Time

Reading teachers will continue the new reward system for doing homework! The Homework Punch Card will be handed out by reading teachers only. If all homework is correctly completed for each subject, then one punch will be earned per subject. These punches will be given on Fridays by core subject teachers. When 5 punches have been earned, the card can be exchanged for a FREE TECH "MONDAY" pass! That's right...electronics can be used on Mondays as a reward for being awesome students! :)
