Homework Policy

  • Assignments are given orally and posted on the assignment board.
  • Children are required to copy them in their Assignment Notebooks.
  • Students will record special due dates. Assignments recorded without a due date are due the next day.
  • The notebooks are checked at school, taken home daily by the student, checked by the parent and returned the following school day.
  • Time may be given in class to begin an assignment. Any work not completed is considered homework.
  • There will be times that special reports will be assigned and will be considered homework.

Homework Guidelines

  • Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday with the exception of long term assignments and projects.
  • Fourth graders will be expected to do up to 40 minutes of homework per night, as research suggests the appropriate amount is about 10 minutes per grade level.
  • Parents should contact the child’s teacher if homework is surpassing the suggested time limit on a regular basis.

Fourth Grade Reading Program

Because we believe that developing reading skills is crucial to a child’s success in school, our fourth grade team is encouraging independent reading through three vehicles—a weekly reading log, a reading contest, and an electronic reading program.
