Quarter 1 Week 7
Homework Survey Results
Thank you to everyone who completed the homework survey. 38 out of 90 families completed the survey for third grade. Here are the results: 57% students complete homework in under an hour, 21% complete it in an hour or so, and 18% are exceeding the recommended minutes regularly. If your child exceeds the recommended time limit of an hour after focused effort, and you feel as if the time is no longer productive, please feel free to stop your child. If that is the case, please email the teachers and write a note on the assignments to notify them. Thank you!
