Homework Expectations

Homework is an important part of learning.  Here are a few things you’ll want to know.

  • Each week students are expected to practice math 3 times a week using their Mathletics account. Students have been given their passwords during the first week of school.

Bible Memory Work

Each month you will be given a short passage to memorize.  It will be given at the beginning of the month and you will have to memorize it for later that month.

  • You may say your memory work before it is due.
  • If you don’t want to say your memory work out loud you may write it out on paper during school time.
