    It is important for your child to stay caught up on the most current project.  Since many of our assignments last from one to four weeks, if they get behind, I encourage them to come in before school or during Lunch to get extra help.

    It is difficult to spend an additional one to four weeks coming in during the morning, to make up a project.  If you know you are behind, it is much easier to get help while we are currently working on that project.

    If you are behind on your project and want to make sure are finished by the due date, then keep reading.

    What to do if you have been "Absent" or "Are just behind on the current project":

    You may come in before school and work from 7:50am-8:20am M-F, on Wednesdays, 8:30am-9:20am (Enter through the doors by my room).  Please let me know if you will be here so I can plan to be in my room.  I ask that you email me @ dwolford@grantspass.k12.or.us , the night before you plan to come in and I will email you back.
