Also, a gentle reminder that students still need to have earbuds for class. Students also need to arrive to school with a pencil and a charged iPad. Please help your student be prepared for school by having those tools needed for his or her class learning. Thanks so much for your continued help and support.HomeworkPlease 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.
