Supporting Learning at Home
Homework is given Monday through Thursday in multiple subject-areas.
Students should read regularly at home.
We use an agenda book to promote clear and consistent communication.
Students may also be assigned book projects.
Homework is generally meant for students to do independently, but we do encourage checking your child’s work.
