I believe that homework is necessary for practicing skills that have been learned or for enriching the classroom experience. On the other hand, I don’t believe in overloading students will busywork! In many cases, homework is simply classwork that was not finished. I try to give ample time in class for the completion of assignments, but some students work more slowly and must finish at home.

In order to help students get their homework assignments done, students will be given a Student Planner and a homework folder. They will write their assignments in their planner and place any important papers in the folder. After they complete an assignment, they should place it in the front pocket of the folder. The homework folder includes the Home Reading Log which must be signed each evening. I encourage parents to review the contents of your child’s homework folder and planner each night when signing the Reading Log.

I expect all homework and class work to be turned in on time.. Students will not be allowed to call home if they forget their work. Students should pack their book bags at night with all the materials needed for the next day. Organization is the key to success!
