- Your child is responsible for copying down their assignments in their Assignment Planner. Please take time to check it, so you’ll know your child’s daily work.
- Homework is usually given 4 nights per week as a review/reinforcement of what is taught in class, please check it over with your child.
- Long term assignments will be given (ex. book reports). Please encourage your child to use the time wisely-no last minute efforts.
