Homework Guidelines

Because of the individual differences and needs of students, homework will vary from day to day with each child. The teacher will assign appropriate homework in order to foster the development of good study habits. Assigned homework may be an extension of the school day or involve special reports or projects. 

Parents can help their children with homework by providing a quiet place to study, setting aside a specific time each day for homework, providing necessary materials, assisting with drills (math facts, spelling words) and listening to oral reading. Although a goal of homework is to help the child develop self-responsibility, the child may initially need help in making sure the work is returned on time. If you have any questions, please see your child's teacher directly.

ABOVE ALL, READ TO AND/OR HAVE YOUR CHILD READ TO YOU ON A DAILY BASIS.
