  • Each assignment will be given sectional due dates when certain parts or checkpoints of a project must be completed.
    Students who need more time to complete projects must have the ability to work at home.

  • Check Schoology weekly!
  • Contact Mrs. Lambert with any questions during the week.
  • Students will be sharing their work with Mrs. Lambert via Google Share with Drive.
  • Students will mostly complete their projects using class time;
    however, if not finished in the allotted class time students must complete them at home.




Late Policy:

  • Homework is due at the beginning of each class unless otherwise posted on the assignment page on Schoology.
    (Sometimes homework must be submitted online by Monday at 8pm or Wednesday at 8pm.)
  • Homework that is turned in after class by that evening (same day) receives a 5% deduction for  lateness.
    This is to ensure the importance of bringing your work to class because we frequently use your homework as the review warm-up.
  • Homework submitted online the next day (one day late) receives a 15% deduction.
  • Two days overdue receives a 30% deduction.
  • Homework turned in later than three days after class can only receive 50% of the total points.
  • It is very important to check Schoology for homework deadlines.
    This is the student’s responsibility, not the parent's.
