General Homework Guidelines
There will be assigned homework Monday through Thursday with some weekend assignments for long term projects. Independent Reading called "Book-in-a-Bag" is assigned Monday through Thursday and parents are required to initial the blue log booklet provided. The children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes per night.
Always check your child's assignment pad for nightly assignments. Please be sure assignments are completed.
The "take-home folder" should be checked nightly. Parents should remove notices and put completed homework back into the folder to be returned to school. By making this a habit, children will develop better organizational skills. To help with morning routines, parents may find it helpful to pack the backpack at night for the next day.
