    Q How much time should I spend doing homework in each subject?
    A

       On average, there is about 20 minutes of homework for each subject. The purpose of homework is to review and practice what was learned that day. It also serves as a communication device, so that the parents are aware of what their child is doing in school.

       You are responsible for the work you missed when you are absent. It is important to catch up quickly in order to prevent falling behind. The day    after you are absent, you should ask your teachers about your missing work. If you are absent for more than a day or two, you should contact a friend to bring workhometo you. Also, you should view the "Tonight's Homework" page on this website to stay caught up.
