The Londonderry School District has a policy of 20 minutes per night of homework for second graders.

For my second graders, the homework is about responsibility and accountability...learning to even bring their folders daily is imperative for routine.  The second grade team has decided to prepare monthly homework this year.  With all the changes in our daily routines, we feel the children work hard enough here at school.  This option allows for flexibility for your busy family schedules.  The packets will include a monthly theme "menu" for things to complete as well as a reading bingo sheet and math practice.  Your child will receive a packet in the beginning of each month beginning in October.  Your child will still need to return their Take Home Folder daily.

We will be looking at effort, responsibility and timeliness when homework is returned to class at the end of each month.   If an ongoing problem is noted, please contact me so I can address it. 

Reading is an important part of your child's evening work.  Please be sure their are reading (or being read to), a minimum of two - three times per week.  If you need support for reading choices, please let me know.
