Homework Guidelines

We encourage students, at all grade levels, to have a set time and place each evening for homework.  If there are no specific assignments, the time could be spent reading, reviewing spelling words, memorizing math facts, or playing educational games.  Any educational activity encouraged by families is productive.  Parents have an important role in working with their children to support their learning process through practice skills taught at school. Please review the following suggested homework activity guidelines with your child.
