Q: WHAT IS LIH’S HOMEWORK POLICY AND HOW CAN I HELP IF I DO NOT SPEAK FRENCH?
A: Homework at LIH starts in first grade. Homework almost always include an independent reading time. Additionally, our students have a short assignment that review/rework a concept seen that same day at school.
This is a good way for a child to memorize and practice a new concept, but also for parents to see the learning process, and know what is happening in their child’s school life. The students are always able to understand what is asked of them and do not usually need any support from a parent/adult.
Your child also has the option of Etude (Study Hall) for CP/1st grade to CM2/5th grade. Parents can allow their child to go to Etude on any given day from Monday to Friday from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Three (3) days a week there is French homework support and two (2) days a week English homework support. Children will be grouped by grade level and will have the opportunity to do their homework, after a snack and a brief recess.
