SSL Certificate


The purpose of homework in the Lower School is two-fold:

  • to reinforce and enrich in-class instruction
  • to help students develop the independent work habits to successfully complete assignments

Homework, which begins more regularly in second grade, varies appropriately in length and intensity by grade and subject. There is a general expectation in all grades that students will engage in reading (or being read to) for 30 minutes each night.  Beyond this, the Lower School keeps homework to a reasonable amount. If you have questions or concerns regarding homework, please contact your child’s classroom or homeroom teacher.
