Homework and Parental Expectations

Parents, your involvement in your child’s education is crucial to their success. The third grade team encourages you, as often as possible, to read with your child, practice math skills/facts, and work with them to complete any homework assignments they may have. Our number one priority as teachers is the success of your son/daughter. We are available to answer any questions you may have in regard to how to help your child. 

Regarding homework, we would like to make some important notes:

  •       Weekly assignments will be included on this newsletter and sent home on the first day of each week
  •      From time to time there may be a family project that you will be expected to complete with your student
