Homework
Homework

ACCORDING TO THE GUIDELINES SET BY WINSTON SALEM/ FORSYTH COUNTY SCHOOLS, FIFTH GRADE STUDENTS AVERAGE 45 TO 75 MINUTES OF HOMEWORK EACH NIGHT. HOMEWORK IS ASSIGNED MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY WITH SOME SPECIAL PROJECTS REQUIRING INDEPENDENT WORK THAT MAY BE DONE ON WEEKENDS. PLEASE CHECK INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS’ WEBSITES FOR SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENTS. STUDENTS SHOULD WRITE HOMEWORK IN THEIR AGENDA EACH DAY. Children will be given the responsibility of writing down their homework at the beginning of each block. By doing so, children are becoming independent learners and are developing the necessary skills needed for middle school.

Random agenda checks will occur throughout the year.
