Homework & Grading

New this year--STUDENT AGENDAS & BINDERS!


Students will write assignments in agendas or binders. Please check daily to see assignments.

Homework is an integral part of curriculum. Parents can support by setting aside a specific time and place for studying. Inform the teacher if your child is having issues with homework--taking too long/not long enough, too challenging/too easy, etc.

General guidelines on the amount of time that homework should take:

Grades 1-3...2 hrs per wk/30 min daily

Grades 4-6...3 hrs per wk/45 min daily

 

Since this is our first year of full implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS), you will notice a big shift in homework and grading. Please keep in communication with your child's teacher for updates on curriculum, grading, and new report cards.
