Homework will be assigned on a daily basis, Monday through Thursday, but generally not on Friday or weekends. All assignments can be completed without parental assistance and in under one hour if done without stoppages. Homework will generally consist of reading in science or social studies, with some comprehension questions. Any incomplete classwork will also be expected to be completed at home. Math homework will only be assigned after the students have mastered the skill. Most homework will be completed in their Homework Journal. Students will be assigned several short research projects throughout the year with a duration of no more than two weeks. The students will also complete a month long project, of their choice, at the end of the year.
