Holy Family Academy Homework Policy

Parental support of homework is a critical responsibility of Holy Family Academy parents; this is the line past which teachers have precious little control. The following homework guidelines outline the teamwork expected of all parties involved.   Holy Family Academy is dedicated to training students in both the essential and advanced skills necessary for ongoing education. Homework is an essential means of providing students with specific opportunities to practice and extend the application of skills and knowledge. Parents of students in grades 1-5 should expect their children to do homework at least 4 days per week.  A Homework and Conduct Journal is provided for all students to record daily assignments. In addition to daily homework, it is highly recommended that all children read at least 1/2 hour each day from a book that they love.
