Homework is an important part of a child’s learning experience. It is designed to teach responsibility of completing a task or tasks and is for the reinforcement of a skill previously taught in the classroom.

    Your child will get the most benefit out of homework if:


    1. There is a set time to work each night.
    2. There is a place to do homework that is clean, well lighted, quiet, and properly supplied. (Pencils, paper, eraser, etc.).
    3. There is attention from a parent/guardian during this important part of the day. (CHECK YOUR CHILD’S AGENDA/HOMEWORK PACKET EACH NIGHT AND SIGN OFF THAT ALL WORK IS COMPLETED)
    4. There is a plan to make sure that homework is returned each day.
    5. Remember that homework is practice for your child and not for you.
    6. Students are expected to spend an average of 20-30 minutes on homework at the primary grades (K-3) and an average of 45 minutes at the elementary grades (4-5), four days a week (Monday-Thursday).
    7. Parents are encouraged to read to their children in the lower grades, and students in the upper grades should spend at least 30 minutes a day in silent reading at home.
