Homework is designed to motivate students and is assigned when individual or class needs can best be met through its use. Such assignments might include make-up work due to an absence, additional assignments designed to help students work to their potential, work planned to help students with a particular difficulty, and assignments made to encourage development of a skill or ability. Literacy is the foundation of all academic skills, so we ask that you child reads at home daily. Please communicate with your child’s teacher regularly regarding homework expectations.
