HOMEWORK POLICY

 

Homework reinforces daily work, extends learning begun in the classroom, builds independent study habits, and encourages students to think and work creatively outside of school.  Homework also provides the opportunity for the family to participate in the student’s education. While students may need occasional assistance on their assignments, this is a prime opportunity for the children to practice their skills independently.  Parents should make every effort to provide a suitable environment for their children to complete assignments and provide encouragement, but to let children take responsibility for their homework.



At the beginning of the year, during Open House, teachers will outline their expectations for the quantity and quality of homework.



It is suggested that grades one and two will receive assignments on an occasional basis consisting of review or activities to create an interest in learning.



Other grades may use the following suggested guideline:



            Grade 3                        20-30, minutes 3 or 4 times a week

            Grade 4                        25-40, minutes 3 or 4 times a week

            Grade 5                        35-40, minutes 3 or 4 times a week

            Grade 6                        40-65, minutes 4 times a week

 

Homework assignments will be avoided during holidays, weekends, and vacations. Long term projects may overlap weekends and/or holidays, so it is always important that parents and teachers teach children to manage their time effectively. Please remember that these are guidelines for an average student and your child may take more or less time due to their learning style.
