Homework & Projects

*** Please check planners daily, read the weekly flyers and the class emails for updates. ***

Students will get a homework packet with a cover sheet of reminders and upcoming events. Spend no more than 10-15 min. on homework and let me know if your student is having difficulties. The intention of homework is for concept building and good work habits, not for mere completion.

Students will use a monthly reading log to track minutes read at home.Please return each one at the end of the month for your student to earn a prize.

Letters on class projects and activities throughout the year will be posted under "School/Classroom Information & Events" in the "Uploads" tab under the website title. These will also be emailed to you and a paper copy will go home with students. You'll find additional resources and copies of rubrics, letters, etc. under "Uploads."
