Homework Philosophy

Homework is an opportunity for students to practice and reinforce some of the topics, skills and materials addressed during the school day. Setting aside a period of time to independently focus, think, explore, and engage in the work of the day allows children to extend and solidify their learning in a distraction-free environment.

In grades 1-3, students have approximately ten minutes of homework time per grade level (Grade 1=10 minutes total, Grade 2=20 minutes total, Grade 3=30 minutes total), plus additional time for independent or family reading. In Grades 4 and 5, students follow the same guidelines; however, the time is not necessarily balanced across the week. Students are learning to manage their time, and thus may need additional homework time to study for tests and complete projects.
