All Students will receive homework Monday-Friday. However, this is up to the teacher’s discretion. In order to be academically successful students must complete ALL HOMEWORK assigned. Homework will be relevant to the classroom lessons and reinforces the skills necessary for our students to succeed.
We ask parents/guardians to set aside homework time every evening and create a space within their homes so students can complete their homework.
If your child tells you he/she does not have homework, check in the backpack. If they don’t have any homework, there are options to assist their learning. Options include: having students practice their simple math facts, write sentences with their spelling words, creating a story, or using the Internet to research information on a topic of interest. The possibilities are endless. Please note that while some students are able to work on their homework in after-school programs, we cannot guarantee that it will be completed.
Also, students should read every night for at least 20 minutes.
Reading just 20 minutes a day really adds-up and has life-long positive impacts. Starting in kindergarten, if a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. They will have read for 851 hours by 6th grade and on standardized tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers. Make time every day to read to your child and/or have them read on their own.
