Homework Policy:

My hope is that my assigned homework will serve a purpose in your child's development and not just be busy work. I hope it will teach your child to work independently, to become responsible for completing and returning their homework on time, to learn how to manage their time more effectively, how to meet deadlines, and to develop a love for reading.  According to, the key is to make sure the homework has purpose, has clear directions, and is designed to help develop a student's knowledge and skills. When I assign home projects or assignments they will be relevant to what we are learning in the classroom. Thank you for choosing a charter school for your child! This sends me the message that you want the best for your child's education and that you are willing to support me and your child with all homework and classwork. :)

From the Lunchroom...
From the lunch room:  Parents are able to create accounts to view and/or pay on students lunch accounts. Parents will need their student's lunch number to view their history and current balance.  If they or their students do not know this number have them contact the kitchen.  When making payments on-line there is a 4.9% processing fee.
