Mrs. McCormack’s 5th grade homework

Posted on September 28, 2020

5th Grade Homework Policy

Homework will be given almost every day and the assignments are due the next day of school unless otherwise noted.  The students are expected to write down all of their assignments in their agendas.  This page is a backup source and if I am out for some reason no assignments will be posted here.  Homework is assigned for review or enrichment and how and when it is completed helps me determine how well your student understands what we are learning.
