Homework News


Parents and Guardians, homework is being posted using the Remind app service. Most parents/guardians have already signed up using this, please let us know if you need more information. 
Physical Education: Students are required to bring gym clothes to change on their scheduled PE days. Mr. Uitto's days are Monday and Wednesday and Mrs. Prater's are Tuesday and Thursdays.  Several students are still forgetting to bring their gym clothes and change.  

Reminder homework should not be more than sixty minutes per night. The National PTA recommendations fall in line with general guidelines suggested by researcher Harris Cooper: 10-20 minutes per night in the first grade, and an additional 10 minutes per grade level thereafter (e.g., 20 minutes for second grade, 60 minutes for sixth) as according to National Education Association.

*Reading needs to take place nightly for twenty minutes.
