Homework is valuable for your child. When, as parents, you take an interest in your child’s schoolwork it increases the child’s motivation. Homework helps the child develop responsibility and self-direction in studies.
Lower Elementary – Grades 1 –3 – The classroom teacher will formally assign Home Reading. Parents can also encourage Home Reading. We recommend 10 – 15 minutes a day.
Upper Elementary – Grades 4 – 6 – Individual teachers will make parents more aware of requirements about homework.
Student’s homework assignments should be about 20 –30 minutes. Where no specific homework is given, we encourage your child to read at home each evening. Extending in-class learning can always be done through home related research.
