    WIN

    WIN stands for “What I Need.”  We will have a daily 15 minute class block specifically for what YOU need that day!  

    I will be happy to help you with other class assignments during this time.  Make sure you bring the materials you need to class!

     

    Absences and Makeup Work

    Make sure your parents write an excuse if you are absent from school.  You will need to take the note to the front office.


    If you miss class, you can make up your assignment during “What I Need” (WIN) time.
