The purpose of homework is to practice, confirm and extend learning. It also helps children develop the study habits they will need throughout their school careers and is an opportunity for parents to be involved in their child’s learning. Students in grades one through five will be assigned nightly reading of take-home books. Additional homework in other content areas will also be assigned on a nightly basis.
Reporting student progress
Student progress reports may be issued for all students throughout the year. Report cards are issued at the end of each trimester online at Skyward Family Access. Parent conferences for all students will be arranged at the end of the first marking period in the fall. A spring conference will be scheduled as needed by teachers and parents. Conferences about student progress are appropriate whenever a parent or teacher requests a meeting and may be scheduled throughout the year.
Field trips are an important part of the learning process. Each grade level plans two trips a year to enhance the curriculum. All school policies and procedures are in effect during a field trip. Parents who volunteer to chaperone a field trip are obligated to follow school policy and procedure, as such chaperones may not bring siblings or other children on a field trip.
Please note, unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances or weather conditions, a field trip may suddenly need to be canceled on the day of the trip and rescheduled at a later date.
