CFE Homework Letter

Dear Parents/ Guardians:

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year; we know it will be a wonderful year! This letter is to explain our school-wide homework policy.

We have spent time researching and studying homework procedures and we have determined what is best for our school, our students and families.
Our homework policy is as follows.

All students are be expected to read nightly and to be prepared for all tests that are given. However, if you feel your child needs extra practice or they are struggling with a concept, you can request additional practice ideas from your child’s teacher.


What will you do with your extra time? 

We have a few suggestions!

Eat dinner as a family
Play outside
Read together
Enjoy playing a team sport
Play a board or card game together
Join dance or gymnastics
Get to bed early

Grade Level Homework Expectations
Students will be given books to read at home and record on the book log.
Practice letter naming, letter sounds and nonsense words.
Practice counting and number identification.

Grades 1 & 2
Students will read a library book on their Lexile level for 10 minutes and record in the planner. Parents are to sign the planner daily.
Extra reading and/or math practice may be sent home, if needed.

Grades 3, 4 & 5
Students will read 20 minutes Monday-Thursday. They will read from their library books at the appropriate Lexile level. This will be noted in the planners each day in the reading section and signed by their parent. Students will record the book title and the pages read each night.
Students are be expected to study for tests in all subjects.
Students are encourage to practice Math Facts.

Extra reading and/or math practice may be sent home, if needed.

If you have any questions concerning our new procedure, do not hesitate to contact me.
