Students should bring their study folders home with them each night (the folder used for LA and VA). Homework will be on a weekly basis. Study folders will include a reading homework sheet, vocabulary/spelling, and VA Studies study guides. If you don't see it coming home, this is a red flag.

Homework will be due on Fridays. If it is not turned in, it will result in a 0 for the week.
