Educating a child is a cooperative effort involving both the home and school.
Homework is assigned on a regular basis and is considered a valuable part of the
instructional program. Homework is designed to extend and reinforce classroom
learning, encourage personal responsibility and independence, and develop good
study habits. Students, teachers, and parents all have important roles to play
in homework. Homework is most effective when all three do their part.
In order to ensure a common level of understanding between the home and school, the following time commitments are being provided as general guidelines.
Kindergarten - 10-15 minutes daily
1st grade - 10-20 minutes daily
2nd grade - 20-30 minutes daily
3rd grade - 20-30 minutes daily
4th grade - 30-45 minutes daily
5th grade - 30-45 minutes daily
These are average times and may vary because of individual abilities, study
habits, and special projects. Every consideration will be taken to avoid
homework on weekends and during school vacations.
We strive to engage, motivate and inspire students and turn them into lifelong readers. As such, in addition to homework, reading 15-30 minutes is suggested to be part of a student's daily routine.
