6th Grade Homework Policy

The sixth grade teachers will be working together as a team to plan, team teach, and differentiate instruction for our students.  Students could have homework in various subject areas each night.  We have outlined some beliefs and expectations for homework below.


-  We believe homework is an important key to success and academic achievement.

- We believe homework should be used as a tool to reinforce skills that have already been taught in class.

- We believe homework helps teach responsibility, an important skill in life and  future careers. 

- We believe when parents assist students with their homework, they are helping their child improve their

achievement. 

- It is expected that all homework assignments are turned in on the due date. 

- It is expected that late or incomplete homework must be accompanied by a parent note, email, or phone call,

explaining why the homework is not complete.
