Instead of daily homework this year, we will use an optional homework choice menu to create higher level thinking opportunities and meet each students’ individual educational needs at home.
The homework menu is designed to be completed on your family's timetable in a "pick and choose" fashion. The menu includes a variety of websites which your child uses at school. We encourage your child to choose at least one activity choice nightly.
Additionally, we encourage reading nightly and practicing math facts. Reading can be done in place of a website. Students are not required to turn anything into their teachers for this optional homework.
