Homework Policy 2011-2012 Dear Families, This letter is in reference to HOMEWORK! In first grade, we establish habits that can help or hinder us as the years go by.

Children need to know that their parents think homework is important. It is a great way for you to see what we are doing in school on a daily basis, and check your child's level of understanding.

Homework is practice that reflects concepts taught that day or previously. It serves as a bridge between home and classroom allowing students to share what they are learning at school. Parents can communicate with teachers if a student is struggling with a concept therefore allowing the teacher insight to the student’s mastery of that content. Students must be able to complete the assignment.
