• The major purposes of homework are to reinforce the classroom curriculum, enrich and extend the school experience, offer an opportunity for creativity, and develop responsibility.  Homework is assigned according to the students' needs for skills previously presented, to reinforce and provide practice.  Homework assignments will be written down by the teacher or copied by the student.  The time parameters below are average times.  All children do not work at the same pace.
