    Homework

    Once school has gotten underway, homework will be assigned Monday-Thursday.  Your child will have daily reading, math, and spelling assignments.  Please refer to the WES homework policy for homework guidelines.  Homework is assigned to provide practice and reinforcement of skills already learned.  First Graders take home and return homework in their offical homework folders.
