17 Homework Policy  Each morning when they arrive, students are expected to write their homework for the night in their agendas.  Homework is generally due the next day unless otherwise specified.  If they return their homework, completed to the best of their ability, the next day, they will receive a homework dollar.  Please sign your child’s agenda each night – we frequently use agendas as a way to communicate

19 One Final Note…  Third grade is a great year, full of new ideas and challenges  It is also a year where responsibility and independent thinking are fostered and developed.  Please help encourage your child to rise to the challenge of becoming a responsible, independent thinker!
