• Homework

    Homework is assigned each night to reinforce concepts and skills learned in the classroom. Homework assignments are carefully designed to prepare students for future lessons and assessments.

    Students may have up to 60 minutes of homework.  If students are struggling with homework or often spending longer than an hour to complete homework, please contact me immediately.  Sending an email or writing a note in the agenda are great ways to communicate with me.  Independent reading is included as part of students' nightly homework assignments.

    Any student who fails to appropriately complete his or her homework will make up the assignment during recess and/or homework the next night.
