One objective of homework is to foster responsibility. Therefore, students are required to write down their homework. For Grades 1 and 2, this is done on a Weekly Homework Sheet in their binder. Starting in Grade 3, students record their assignments in their agendas. Please refer to your child's binder/agenda if you have any questions.
All students are expected to read an independent book daily. A reading log, sometimes requiring a written response, will be provided. However, EVEN IN THE ABSENCE OF A WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT, STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO READ DAILY.
Ideally, students should read until they reach a logical stopping point; but a general guideline is:
Grade 2: 20 minutes
Grade 3-5: 30 minutes
Additionally, a spelling test will be given on most Fridays.
