    Homework
    Please know that it is our intent to give approximately one hour of homework per night.  This amount is decided upon by the school committee. This is a cumulative amount. Students should have approximately ten minutes of homework per class in sixth grade.Some evenings students may have five minutes in science, but then have fifteen in math, or five in ELA and ten in social studies. If your child is spending too much time on homework, please contact your child's homeroom teacher.   
     
    The following  LINK provides some helpful hints for making homework more effective and less stressful for student and parent.

    BOURNEDALE INFORMATION
     
    Bournedale is the sixth grade end of year trip. Students spend several days at camp in Plymouth, MA. Students explore nature and participate in activities that support team building and science related curriculum. This is an overnight trip and could not occur without the help of parents who help chaperone.
     
    For this and any field trip, parent chaperones need a current CORI form and fingerprints filed with the district  There will be more information coming about documents and procedures needed for chaperoning, but if you would like to participate and chaperone for Bournedale or any other trip, please submit your paperwork early in the year.
