Goals and Expectations
At the Morse School, our third graders are immersed in a rich curriculum.
Class Activities and Special Programs

are assessed using both formal and informal methods, including
observations. Each student is assessed according to her/his individual
progress and grade benchmarks.
*This is the first year that students will be taking the state MCAS in reading and math.
are assigned homework Monday-Thursday. We do not typically assign
homework over the weekend, but there are a few large assignments that
are given over weekends/holidays. Students in the third grade are
expected to spend 30-45 minutes on their homework a night. Each night’s
homework typically consists of a math, writing, and reading assignment.
Student reading needs to be recorded and signed/initialed by an adult.
Students in Mr. Macomber’s class get a spelling list on Monday and are
expected to study their words throughout the week to prepare for a
spelling test every Friday.
