Friday Homework Folders!
  • Friday Folder These folders will be sent home

    information and your childs work from the week.
  • Homework is designed to reinforce class
    instruction and should take on average about 20
    minutes per night. In addition, your child should
    be reading at least 20 minutes every night,
    either independently or with you (hopefully
    both!) By supporting your childs homework, you
    send the message that learning is important.
