At Murray, homework is not optional.

We have homework Monday through Thursday nights.

Usually 15-20 minutes for math, plus reading.

We will have a folder that will contain the homework, the homework form, and any papers that need to stay at home. There will be a form for a parent to sign as the child is doing the work.

You MUST do you homework in 1st grade!

You MUST bring back you folder each day.
