Elementary - Homework

Why do I assign homework?
The homework I assign is designed to reinforce what has been learned in class, prepare students for upcoming lessons, teach responsibility and help students to develop positive study habits.

When will homework be assigned?
Homework will be assigned four nights a week (not usually on the weekends).  Assignments should not take more than 60 minutes.  Each night there will be math and English language arts homework.  

What are the children’s homework responsibilities?
My expectations are that the students do their best on each homework assignment.  The work should be legible and neatly organized. I encourage students to do their homework on their own.  Missing and incomplete homework will affect report card grades. They need to show that they have tried even if they are struggling with the assignment. Your child is expected to make up all missing homework.  

What are parent’s homework responsibilities?
Parents are the key to making homework a positive experience for their children.  Children are more eager to do homework if they know their parents care that it gets done.
