As a parent of a fifth grader, it is important for you to know that homework is an integral part of the learning process and includes opportunities for students to reinforce, synthesize, and extend classroom learning. Homework will be assigned periodically throughout the week. I will have children write their homework assignments in their class agenda’s. I will not be posting the assignments here. I believe that when students write their assignments in their agenda’s each day, responsibility is developed and students are held accountable for their work.
There will be nights when I do not assign homework.I do not want to take away from family time or time away from letting “kids be kids.” Please know that while your child is in class, they will be pushed to their limits and will be working very hard.
-All assignments are expected to be completed and turned in on time.
-Late assignments will only be accepted if the student has been ill or an emergency warrants an extension.
-Late homework should be accompanied by a parent note, email, or phone call with an explanation.
