Textbooks and Homework

Textbooks and Homework:

TEXTBOOKS All students in grades 1-5 are issued textbooks free of charge. The textbook form must be returned before a student can receive books. The student and parent are responsible for these books. Lost and/or damaged books must be paid for in order to receive books. Prices are based on the system cost of each book for students.


At Carver Elementary and Arts Magnet School, we consider homework to be a worthwhile use of time outside of the regular school hours to practice, maintain, enrich, complete, or make-up classroom activities. Homework is designed to help students with a wide range of subjects and to reinforce or apply many different skills. Homework assignments will be varied to fit the needs of the students.

In addition, students will be required to read a variety of books to enhance reading skills. Students are required to read 20 to 30 minutes each night in addition to their regular assignments. A parent or guardian’s signature is requested on the nightly reading logs. Nightly reading logs will be checked weekly, collected, and recorded as part of the reading grade. Students will not receive credit for completing the task if the log is not signed by parent or guardian.

This year, a unified approach will be used to document the completion of homework. Homework may account for 10% of the overall final grade assigned per subject each nine weeks. Please encourage your child to complete all of his/her nightly homework.
