Homework

Homework is an important extension of the teaching/learning that takes place in school. It can contribute to practice and drill that reinforces learning.  It can provide opportunities for study, research and creativity.  Parents can assist their children by providing a quiet place for the students to work for a specific time and by checking assignments that are completed. Middle School students can expect 60-90 minutes of daily homework.  Research shows that students who do homework, experience more success in school.
