We will not assign homework unless we are working on a project that requires some home time or we are asking students to study for a test. Homework is considered any work not completed during the school day.
We also have a "30 Minute Rule" in third grade. If your child is spending more than 30 minutes doing homework at night, we need to know this. Usually this means your child is struggling with the work or has misused his/her work time in the classroom. Either way, we need to know so we can help your child make a plan to get his/her work done.
