Do I have homework? Yes, there is homework.Typically there is 20 minutes of reading (with parent signature on reading log), math, and grammar, Book Bag homework. There will be some projects as well.
When is this updated? Homework is posted and updated daily on this page at about 1:50pm daily.
What if I am absent or ran out of time to write in my planner? If absent due to illness, make up homework upon return. Other than illness, there are no excuses. This is updated daily for the purpose that students and parents can check at any given time before or after school. Missing school, school work, and/or homework for the purpose of family leisure trips is discouraged. Absenteeism is tough on everyone.
Why do I have to have homework?! Mrs. Acopan's philosophy on homework is that it is a follow-up of what was learned in class to check for understanding (with the exception of some assignments- projects, information, etc). If a child struggles on homework but gives it a good try, there is absolutely no penalty for incompletion IF the student lets the homework checker AND the teacher know by showing a parent signature with a little note or a quick parent email to me. Please put a question mark (?) on the problems struggled with.
How will I know if my child is doing his/her homework? When homework is missing or incomplete, communication via “class dojo” will let parents and students know dates of missing/incomplete (unexcused) homework. Students will stay in for recess to complete unexcused missing homework (not optional) or get tutoring on the parts that he/she did not understand (optional).
