• hw The Westfield Elementary School homework policy is as follows: "Homework is an extension of the work of the regular school program and is important to a student's overall success.  Homework is specific, detailed lesson preparation outside of class.  Our school procedures support the regular assigning of homework in grades K-5.  Students need homework to solidify classroom instruction.  Homework builds self-discipline and responsibility."
     
    I will assign grade level appropriate homework to your child most nights.  These assignments are meant to be a review of material taught in school.  I will not give homework on weekends or over vacation.  Homework assignments will be placed in your child's blue communication folder.  The folder should travel to and from school with your child each day.
