Permission Forms

In an effort to provide as much information to you as possible, we have added a new section to our web site under the Documents tab at the top of the page.  We will now be posting all the permission forms that we will be sending home in paper copy.  Hopefully, this will be helpful to you if someone has misplaced a permission form.

The Department of Education has recently released some documents on homework. There is a Grades 4-6 Homework Tips pamphlet that you may find here...

http://www.ednet.ns.ca/pdfdocs/curriculum/Homework_Tips_4-6.pdf (you may have to copy and paste this link)

There is also a grade 4-6 Let's Talk About Homework pamphlet...

http://www.ednet.ns.ca/pdfdocs/curriculum/LTA_Homework_4-6.pdf (you may have to copy and paste this link)

The Department of Education will also be releasing a P-3 pamphlet, but it will NOT be referred to as homework is not formally required until grade 4.

The department of education states..." In primary to grade 3, formal homework is not required. Teachers can and often do provide families with regular access to books that may be read with young students. This practice supports the cultivation of a love of learning and sharing is encouraged. Teachers may also offer activities for students to complete at home, such as math games. However, such activities should not be regarded as a requirement. Teachers should communicate with parents/guardians about how learning can be supported at home without the formal demand for homework."
