The purpose of homework is to reinforce lessons taught during the day and to allow our students to sharpen their skills. Homework is given on a daily basis, so be sure to check your child’s school planner (Gr. 2-5) or homework notebook and homework folder (K-1). As your child progresses through the grades, the amount of homework will increase, as needed. Short and long-term assignments are given to increase your child's ability to read, write, comprehend and integrate what he/she learns into a whole learning experience. Please see that your child completes homework and projects in a timely manner. These are important life skills that will serve him/her well as life-long learners. Your child is expected to read independently at home daily; your teacher will advise you of the appropriate level and amount of time your child should devote to reading.
