As per the Shade Elementary Handbook:
1. Homework is not given as “busy work.” It is given as extra practice and to reinforce the concepts that were covered in class. If it is given, it is necessary and your child is expected to complete it on time. Please be aware that a homework grade is given each nine weeks.
