Homework Survey - Open October 24 - October 28
Friday, October 21, 2016 11:25 AM


Your input is important to us.  We are conducting a short survey to determine what our Bryn Mawr homework policy will be.  We want to know what the value of homework is at your house.  We are gathering input from 3 different stakeholders; parents, students, teachers.  Our goal is to have a new homework policy up and running by winter break. 

Please complete the short survey and return to school by Friday, October 28th, 2016.

Thank you,

Principal Ward
