We do have regular homework in grade seven and grade eight. On most nights, each subject should average between 10-30 minutes. Occasionally there will be no homework, and sometimes your child will have an opportunity to finish his or her homework in school. The purpose of homework is two-fold: to reinforce what we have learned in class and to teach responsibility. If an unusual circumstance prevents your child from doing his or her homework (sickness, injury, or other serious problem), please send a note with your child when back at school, so that he or she can be excused. If social studies homework takes longer than 30 minutes, please be sure to note where your child worked for 30 minutes and then sign the homework in that spot. Homework is due on the day and date listed above.
