Daily tutoring and homework time is offered at lunchtime and recess. Your student can always find extra practice with concepts at www.tenmarks.com assignments.
Students nightly homework is cyclical review of previously learned concepts. Minute packets are given out on Monday and are graded each day. Corrections on homework should be included in the next night’s homework.Corrections are also checked for daily. Much of classwork is done in Math journals.
