Homework Free Holidays

Homework Free Holidays
Posted on 09/13/2018
Hello South Brunswick Families,

Once again, South Brunswick is purposefully and intentionally designating “homework free” nights throughout the year.  The purpose of homework free nights is to give students time off from preparing homework and projects and studying for tests, as well as offering students an opportunity to explore topics that they are passionate about, spend time with family, enjoy outside activities, and attend South Brunswick events. There is tremendous value in engaging in meaningful homework assignments that reinforce concepts and skills taught during the school day. At the same time, there are times when we need to collectively have a break from the responsibilities of homework and enjoy time with family and friends.
