Welcome to Mrs. Petroski's Class!

  • This page will be a resource for announcements and information throughout the year. Please visit often! 

     

    I do not typically assign homework. The curriculum has homework built into it and we do it in class as our end of lesson exit ticket. The only way students will have homework at home is if they do not finish their classwork. 

    The weekly agenda is always subject to change based on progress through the unit. We may go slower or faster based on student understanding of the topic being covered.
