Dear GPS parents and students, 

     This school year, homework will only consist of in-class work your child didn't finish during class time. There will be No Formal Homework assigned unless requested.

     As an educator/parent, I ask you to spend time with your child in the evenings to promote opportunities for success in their learning.  Eating dinner together, cooking, enjoying an outdoor activity, and get your child to bed early.

Thank you,

Mrs. Looney
