An Elephant Never Forgets . . . his HOMEWORK





At this time, the students are beginning to accept the responsibility of writing down their own homework for Math, Social Studies, Science, Reading, Writing, and Spelling.  They are also to ensure that they have all necessary materials when they leave and return school.  The students are even responsible for keeping this page updated with posts about homework, due dates, important dates and events, and any other daily reminders. 

Your child should expect to spend approximately a half hour on homework, including 25 minutes of independent reading.

The expectation is that homework should be handed in on time, thoroughly completed, and neatly finished.  Keep in mind if your child is having difficulty with the homework, my office hours are posted outside of the classroom, on the school website and on this website!  Otherwise, I can definitely make an appointment to work with your child, or you and your child, to discuss the homework or challenges.
