Homework is due on Thursday morning.

Homework: Homework will be practice, application or an extension of what is learned in class. The homework assignments will be meaningful, purposeful, and aligned to classwork. At Ralston, we believe homework should be flexible in order to respond to the needs of the students. Therefore, you will not see the exact same assignments on a weekly basis. Homework will be sent via Friday Folders, so please be sure to check.


Math Packet: Students will receive a weekly math packet in their Friday folder. The packet needs to be completed and returned to school in the Friday folder.
