Parents can find a quick summary of what we are doing each week on the weekly class newsletter. We email it to parents each Friday, as well as send a paper copy home with students. In the newsletter you'll also find each week's spelling lists and weekly announcements. If you are not receiving the weekly newsletter please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com so we can add your to our mailing list!
Research shows that there is NO benefit to students who complete weekly homework before 6th grade. As a result, we no longer assign homework! Students have time each day in class to study for the spelling test. However families are welcome to help students study at home, if needed. We ask that families read 20 minutes each day as part of a healthy lifestyle, but we do not require that anything be turned in.
