This site is to be used to let you as the parent know what we are completing in class. This site is not to be used as a tool to help your child remember what it is they have to do each nite for homework. Even though this is not much assigned in French, students are expected to watch at least 15 mins of French TV or listen to French radio per evening. I expect in my classes that students take responsibility for their learning in knowing when assignments, test dates etc.. are expected and taking place and should not rely on this site as I will not post when things are due here.
