Homework Policy


  Homework is very important to students.  It helps develop responsibility and build academic skills.  Nightly homework should take about 50 minutes, including nightly reading.  I will give work each night (Monday-Thursday) and it should be turned in on the following  morning.  The agenda lists their homework for the week, weekly vocabulary words and notes about behavior and upcoming events (like field trips!)  The  agenda MUST come back to school every day because that is your child's organization system and a communication tool.   You can include questions, transportation changes and excuses for missed days.  Please feel free to call me, but realize class should not be interrupted and I will need to return your call on my break or at the end of the day.
