For ELA, the students are expected to read 20 minutes each night (M-Th) and 40 minutes over the weekend.  They are also expected to check their AR progress once a week and record their progress on the weekly sheet that they are given.  This sheet needs to be signed and will be checked each Monday morning and will count as a homework grade each week.  

The students will occasionally have homework in Science.  

Below are the different categories that you will see in the grade book for both ELA and Social Studies.
