Homework Policy

Homework Policy:  Homework is given Monday-Thursday and usually consists of spelling, math, language arts skills, reading comprehension and a poem to memorize every other week.  I also require your child to read at least 15 minutes each day with a parent.  The assignment sheet is given out on Monday and needs to be signed each night upon completion of homework and reading.  It is returned on Friday with Thursday night’s homework and the Reading is Cool reading log.   Parents, please monitor your child’s homework for completion and neatness.  Thank you!! 


Book Orders
Book Orders are sent home once a month and are a great way to improve your child’s reading level.  I am using the online ordering for parents.  My code is DVFVP Continue
