The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.

Welcome Back!
Assigned work for Core classes:
Assigned work for Positive Psychology:
***You are graded for quality, content,
punctuation, spelling, capitalization.
Every answer needs to have the question
re-worded into the answer. There are
no short answers. Please do not use
pronouns where there is a reference
to a person's name in your answer.
Study Skills Class:
 Be sure to get your planner signed every night-even if you think you have no h.w.
Your planner should be neat and clearly planned out for success.
General study rule---Please be sure to
study for all upcoming sp and voc
tests and history quizzes.
Don't wait until the night before!
General H.W. quality expectation---
As always---All answers must be in
complete sentences. Use the
correct heading.
Please use proper grammar.
Capitalization, punctuation,
and spelling (that is used in
that section) are evaluated as
part of the grade for h.w. In
other words, quality counts:)
We still can't get the correct
heading on our papers.
Let's pay attention to detail;)
