Homework

Homework is viewed as an opportunity to reinforce newly-mastered skills and more fully absorb knowledge presented during the school day.

  • Students can anticipate an average of 10-15 minutes of work per evening per grade level.
  • If there is an evening of “no homework”, we suggest home reinforcement of basic skills, such as reading and math.
  • Guidelines for each grade level and ideas for reinforcement opportunities are communicated at the beginning of the school year.
