HOMEWORK GUIDELINES
Based on researched best practices students may be assigned a
maximum of ten minutes of homework multiplied by their grade level
per night. (Example; 1st grade may be assigned no more than ten
minutes of homework per night; fourth grade may be assigned no
more than forty minutes of homework per night). Please note that

teachers may determine that homework is not necessary to


support learning.
Homework will only be assigned Monday through Thursday.
Homework time for any grade level is proportioned so that equal
time is dedicated to the classroom and supporting German. The
purpose in prioritizing German is to support native German speakers.

The different learning needs of students will be considered when


assigning Homework.
Reading for pleasure and instrument practice is not considered
homework.
Homework will not be assigned or expected in our Early Childhood
classes.
There will be days/weeks that are connected to holidays and
special events when homework will not be assigned to give families
more time for celebration and reflection.

Parents are Encouraged to

Help children set-up a homework routine at home.

Students

Stop your child from working if it is taking them longer than our
guidelines support. (1st grade = ten minutes, 4th grade = 40 minutes)
and let their teacher know that the assigned homework required more
time than the outlined amount. Your communication will help us to
monitor our homework time.
