Homework is a reinforcement, extension and/or preparation of
materials and skills covered in the classroom, and allows the
student an opportunity to work independently. As reinforcement,
assignments should cover skills previously taught which the
majority of the class understands. As extension, long‑term
projects such as compositions, book reports, research projects,
and oral presentations may be assigned. Students may gather or
prepare materials needed for class projects. Homework is
generally assigned Monday through Thursday. Ordinarily, homework
is not assigned on weekends except for the purpose of making up
work missed through absence, through poor effort, to complete
long term projects, or because the student needs extra practice
on basic skills. The teacher at Back to School Night explains
individual class homework policies, procedures and timelines.
Each student in grades 5-8 will be issued a homework assignment
book. Assignments are written on the board for students to copy.
