Classrooms » Homework



Homework is a vital part of the learning process. All students receive homework Monday through Thursday. Please provide an appropriate environment in which your child can practice and complete classroom assignments. A quiet location, free from distraction and noise will help children focus on learning. Occasionally, teachers may assign homework over a weekend. This may include a long-term project or report. You are reminded that homework is to be done by the child; your role is to support their learning. Any homework concerns should be discussed directly with the teacher.

District guidelines for the assignment of homework are as follows:

Kindergarten: 15–20 minute per day

Grades one and two: 30–35 minutes per day

Grades three and four: 35–40 minutes per day

Grade five: 50–60 minutes per day

Note that individual students may complete assignments a little faster or slower than these guidelines.
