Homework in Room 23

Common Sense: the idea of homework is not to frustrate, but to challenge, reinforce and provide practice.

Students are expected to read at least 15 -- 25 minutes a day, seven days a week.

Class work that is not finished in class may be sent home to complete

Homework is collected and checked the day it is due.

Students need to be resourceful if they forget part of an assignment. Call a classmate. If that doesn't work, complete similar work.

Use homework to get organized at home.

Real life happens. If something comes up at home and your student doesn't have time to complete their homework, please just send me a note or email

Parents: if your student is struggling and you can’t help them, please have them stop and let me know that this is an area we need to work on in class. No one should be up all night working on homework!

Healthy Kids in Room 23
  • Please pack nutritious snacks for your child (tickets awarded for fresh fruit/veggies/yoghurt, cheese, or jerky).
  • Make sure your child gets 10 -- 11 hours of sleep per night.
  • Help decrease stress by not over-scheduling (they need downtime).
