Quick Note: Students have access to many tools in class to help with focus. When used appropriately, they will be able to access these tools during class time. Some students have been bringing tools/toys to school. Toys have a distracting impact on the learning environment. For this reason, students will be asked to keep toys in their backpacks until recess time. Thank you for your cooperation in making sure all of our students are coming to school ready to learn!!


In general, students will receive homework Monday-Thursday nights. They will have a math assignment nightly. Words work is assigned on Monday and due back by Thursday. Occasionally, students will receive an assignment for reading, social studies, or science.

Assignment notebooks were distributed to students at the beginning of the year to assist with these new responsibilities. They can be a great communication tool for you and your student.
