Homework Philosophy

Homework is an integral part of the learning process and is assigned at all grade levels to foster and promote habits of independent study. It reinforces concepts taught in the classroom and provides parents/guardians an opportunity of seeing what their child is learning and doing in school. Parents/guardians are encourages to insist that homework be taken seriously and done carefully. Parents/Guardians should periodically check the finished work and, when asked to sign a paper, do so after thoroughly reviewing the work.

Homework is assigned and graded according to each teacher’s policy.
Suggested daily homework time allotments are:

Grade Time
Grade K 20 min
Grades 1-2 20-30 min
Grades 3-4 30-40 min.
Grades 5-6 45-60 min
Grades 7-8 60-90 min
