Definition: Homework is an assignment that is given to a student to be completed outside of the classroom.
Homework will not consist of textbook assignments alone. A variety of worthwhile activities will be used such as: reading, visiting and reporting places of interest in the community, keeping records of weather conditions, etc.
Each teacher will determine the content of the homework based on the grade level, student ability, and teacher expectations. Evaluation and follow-up activities will be immediate.
Each student has an assigned locker for storage of coats, books and personal belongings, etc. All lockers are property of the school; therefore, they are accessible to the school for search or examination when necessary. Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are required to have a combination lock on their locker. Students are required to give their homeroom teacher their combination. Padlocks with keys are not acceptable.
