HOMEWORK

Homework is assigned daily, including short and long term assignments. Long term assignments, which require research and significant independent work will have interim deadlines that can help your child, learn appropriate organizational and time management skills. Students can expect to complete one to one and a half-hours of homework each school night. Homework is an essential part of a child’s education. Parents can encourage and support good study habits by providing a well-lighted study area and establishing a commonly understood homework time each evening.
