Dear Parents,

Homework assignments will be given Monday through Thursday.  Assignments should take 30-45 minutes.  In addition your child should read 20 minutes every night.  This can be done independently or you can read aloud with your child.  Reading calendars need to be signed by you and returned to school at the end of the month.  Children will be given tickets for the returned calendars.  When your child has earned ten tickets for various behaviors a prize may be chosen.
