It is our belief that homework should only be given to reinforce previously learned skills and information. This “extra practice” is intended to help students, not frustrate them (stop after 30 min) and it encourages students to share classroom experiences with parents. In Third grade, students will have about 30min of work but again individual abilities, study skills and time management practices will determine the length of time a student will actually spend on any given task. Credit will be given to students who turn their homework in on time (special circumstances can be worked out with the teachers). If, for any reason, the homework your student brings home is too difficult for them to understand, please let us know immediately (either through e-mail or note to be delivered the next day).
