• Homework Expectations

     

    The District-Wide Homework Policy for the fifth grade has changed.  Some days are subject to be more or less depending on the pace/rate in which each child completes tasks and assignments and whether or not there is a need to decrease or increase the amount depending on the given situation.  Homework is given to have students review skills and concepts taught throughout the day and instill a sense of responsibility and independence in the students. All homework is/ should be written in the agenda.  Students should place a highlighted check mark in the box next to the assignment when the assignment has been completed.
