Homework Policy

First Grade Homework Policy

Dear Parents,

The first grade team researched the effectiveness of homework this summer. Research hasn’t been able to prove that homework improves student performance. Homework will only consist of any unfinished work from that school day. In replacement of homework, we ask that you spend evenings doing things that have been proven to increase student success rates, such as eating dinner as a family, reading a book together, playing outside, and getting your child to bed early.

                                                   Thanks,

                                            First Grade Team
