No Homework Wednesdays!

Every effort will be made to keep from assigning work on  Wednesday evenings. This is to allow our students an opportunity to attend mid-week youth activities and worship services.

 What this does not mean is that students have a vacation day.  They do have the responsibility to review content presented in class and stay ready for upcoming exams.

 On occasion,  an exam could  be on Thursday in an effort to keep students from having several exams on any specific Friday.
