• Kindergarten Homework, what to expect?

Homework is a crucial part of your child's active learning process and essential to their academic progress. Please make sure that any homework that is in your child's homework folder is completed daily.
• Please remember, you are there to support your child's learning, but homework needs to be completed by your child.
