We believe that homework increases learning and is an extension of the learning experience. Students who work conscientiously on their homework become more motivated and successful at school.

Homework will generally be assigned four nights a week, Monday through Thursday. Often students will be required to finish work at home that was not completed in class. It is essential that you set aside a special time for your child to do his/her homework.  By doing this you are saying that education is important. If your child is in kindergarten or first grade, use this time to read to your child and/or let your child read to you.  Help your child form the habit of completing homework beginning the kindergarten year.

If your child is absent, he/she must make up missed work.
