HomeworkHomework is an essential part of our instructional program. It helps a student learn responsibility and reinforces and enriches the students’ learning through an extension of class activities. The determination of specific homework assignments shall be made by the teacher. Generally, the length of time for homework at each grade level will be as follows:
Kindergarten: 40 minutes per week
Grade 1: 80 minutes per weekGrade 2: 100 minutes per week
Grade 3: 120 minutes per week
Grade 4: 140 minutes per week
Grade 5: 160 minutes per week
Grade 6: 180 minutes per weekCertain homework assignments may occasionally exceed the suggested time allotments.
Requests for homework assignments (due to absences) may be made through the office staff. If the request is received before 11:30 a.m., the teacher may be able to have the homework assignments ready after school on the day of the request. If the request is received after 11:30 a.m., the teacher will have the homework assignments ready the next school day. Parents may pick up their child’s homework assignments in the school office
