Homework Expectations

5th graders are asked to write down their homework in their agendas daily. This practice will promote independence in our students.  

Your fifth grader will be expected to read 30 minutes every night for Language Arts. Students are expected to be reading the same book in school and at home. They should be completing Notice and Note Signposts to help them monitor their reading.

There is no proof to support that spending an excess amount of time on homework is productive to student growth. We believe in the importance of spending time doing things that are proven to be productive to student growth; such as spending time together as a family, reading together, playing outside, and going to bed early.

Establishing a good homework routine is beneficial to homework completion. Along with practice, and self-discipline, homework completion also teaches responsibility and independence. Thank you very much for your involvement with your child’s education.
