What to Expect for Homework:

Each night your child will come home with a Book-In-A Bag
and a reading assignment. Assignments will vary in length,
depending upon grade level. Each bag also contains a log sheet,
which needs to be filled out and signed by an adult at home.
Coming prepared and ready to learn is essential for reading success.
