The learning habits and study skills that students develop during their middle school years will serve to build a foundation for their success in high school and future studies. Students regularly have 60-80 minutes of homework a night (sixth grade students being on the lower end and eighth grade being on the higher end). Students are expected to read each night. The amount of homework a student has, along with the reading, will vary dependent on a variety of factors (individual student learning style, rate of learning, type of assignments…) If your child is working beyond 80 minutes each night, and you are concerned, please contact his/her homeroom teacher. Students are expected to complete all assigned work unless other arrangements have been made. All students will be issued agendas at the beginning of the year to help with the organization of class assignments and homework.
