**Remember some classes offered at SHS are required by the Iowa Department of Education/School District and must be completed prior to graduation. Check with Mr. Lange if you have questions when making your schedule.


Teachers assign homework, extra class activities or assignments as necessary.  Homework is an opportunity for students to practice skills and activities, to share and discuss ideas, to review materials, to become acquainted with resources, to organize thoughts, to prepare for classroom activities or to make up incomplete class work.  Students are expected to complete homework on time.  Failure to complete homework may result in loss of class credit and a failing grade in the class.
