Welcome to the course website for senior economics here at Paradise Honors High School in Surprise, Arizona.

Use this website to track and download assignments throughout the course, especially when absent from school. The calendar below is your go-to for downloading most assignments given out during the course. You may view the calendar in either the "Month" or "Agenda" format by clicking either one in the upper right corner. If an assignment is not uploaded to this website, you may only retrieve a hard copy in class upon your return. The website and calendar will be updated daily by 3:30pm at the latest. The calendar will be updated and accessible to users throughout the entirety of the course (August - May). Below the calendar will be a Daily Docket list where you can see what was covered each specific day. If you miss a day of school, see the Daily Docket, followed by the calendar to download any assignments.

For the first semester, I will be a rotating teacher, which means I do not have an permanent classroom. I will be in a different classroom each period of the day, so I do not have a direct phone number in which to reach me. Email is the best and most efficient way to reach me. Locations for after school tutoring hours will be announced to each period when determined.

Come to class each day with paper, pens, and all prior documentation given out throughout the course. It is advised to have a course binder and to save all documentation: syllabus, notes, assignment rubrics, graded assignments, etc. Come to class ready to work each day. Remember...Victory Loves Preparation!

Daily Docket 2017-18
