Homework can nurture self-discipline and independent study habits. When a parent is involved the homework can become a common goal— a time to work together. Taking an active role also lets your child know that you consider the work important.
Homework will be assigned in relation to age, maturity and needs of the academic subject and students. It may be an ad- justment for some students, but most have already developed good study habits and will find it easier. Completion time of homework will vary according to the age of the child and the difficulty of the assignment.
Some very general guidelines follow:
GRADES: (K-2 15 – 45 minutes), (3-4 30 – 60 minutes),
(5-6 - 45 – 90 minutes), (7-8 - 60 – 120 minutes),
Homework time may consist of long-range projects and assignments in addition to daily assignments especially in the up- per grades. Normally, new assignments will not be given over the weekend or vacation periods, however, assignments not completed during a classroom study time should not be considered new assignments and should be completed according to the teacher’s direction. Assignments will be graded and returned.
Homework is expected to be handed in on time.
NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTEDunless extenuating circumstances exist which must be communicated to the teacher by the parent on the day the assignment is due. Work must still be com- pleted and turned in for evaluation.
