Certified, Well Trained, and Professional Staff
Parent's Commitment to Student Success
Write down daily homework in their student agenda.
Take home all of their homework assignments and needed materials.
Check the class blog or contact a classmate if missing any homework assignments.
Solve all homework tasks on their own and ask for help only when they have tried everything to figure out the answer.
Remember to pack completed homework in their backpack every night.

Homework Expectations
Scholars are expected to complete homework everyday and return it on time. Late homework assignments and no names are not accepted and are graded with a zero. In addition, late homework assignments will result in a “color change” since it is a violation of Class Rule #3.

At Imagine School we believe that every successful school must balance achievement in Six important areas that we call The Six Measures of Excellence.
Shared Values (Justice, Integrity, and Fun)
