There will be homework assigned almost every night, including some Fridays. No name papers will lose points. Students will be given time daily to work on these assignments and ask for additional help from me. It is imperative that students learn the responsibility of using class time wisely and completing assignments on time. All assignments are due the morning after they are given unless otherwise stated.
There should not be an excessive amount of time spent on homework each night. While I believe that practice and reinforcement of skills learned throughout the day is important, I also believe that family time is an extremely valuable portion of your child's day. Homework should include finishing any assignments that your child did not finish within the given amount of work time during class as well as practicing math facts and reading books. The total amount of time spent on homework should be no more than 45-60 minutes. This time does not include study time, as that depends on the individual student. If you are consistently noticing more than an hour of time spent on homework in the evening, please contact me. This usually is a result of students not using their class time wisely!
Students will have the opportunity to turn in a late homework assignment for a reduced point value (10% points) as long as it is accompanied by the Late Homework Note signed by both parent and student. If the late homework note does not accompany the assignment, the assignment will not be accepted. Your cooperation in signing this letter is vital and serves two purposes. One is that you, the parent, are always kept aware if your child is not doing assignments or forgetting them at home. Secondly, it sends a message to the student that communication between home and school is an ongoing process that benefits all in an educational setting.
Please review below for specific late homework guidelines.
