Homework will be given on a weekly basis and should be returned inside of the Vessels folder. All work should be completed in PENCIL. Homework will go home on Monday and should be returned on Friday of every week. Homework assignments reinforce classroom lessons and develop basic skills so that students are prepared for the next level of learning. It also provides a valuable opportunity for you child to continue to develop the skills of responsibility, accountability, and organization.
Assignments should be completed neatly, accurately, and turned in on time unless there is a valid excuse (sporting events, club meetings, birthday parties, etc. are NOT valid excuses!) Each homework page needs to be completed to the best of their ability. Neatness demonstrates a sense of pride in one's work. Please do not include irrelevant doodles on papers.
If students are absent, please follow Vessels' and district's absence/homework policy. If students miss one day, work can be requested the following day and picked up after 3:00 P.M. If they are absent 2-4 days, please call before 10 A.M. for homework pickup after 3:00 P.M. daily except 1:25 P.M. on Thursdays. For students absent for more than 5 days, an independent study can be requested with the front office.
