In an effort to save on paper and copies there will be a homework calendar that will go home at the beginning of each month. This calendar will remain in your child's take-home folder until the end of the month. Using a homework calendar will give parents some flexibility to work around busy schedules. There will be a short assignment each day (Monday-Thursday). Written assignments can be done on the paper that will be provided with the calendar. Please don't spend more than 15-25 minutes on any assignment. Homework is not meant to be frustrating to you or your child, so please just jot me a note if it becomes so. My goal is to begin training first graders how to become responsible for completing their homework and returning it to school.
