Homework is an important part of each student's achievement. We believe learning does not end when the student leaves school each day. Homework is an extension of skills and concepts taught during the regular school day and is a time to practice the skills learned in the classroom.
We ask that you support and encourage your child's homework effort and check to see that it is done to the best of your child's ability. However, please do not do your child's homework.
Good homework habits must be developed if a student is to do homework successfully. We have provided five homework tips you and your child may find helpful.
- Set up a study area. This is a well lit, quiet area specifically designated to complete homework.
- Schedule daily homework time. This is a scheduled time specifically used to do homework.
- Create a homework survival kit. Parents can put together a kit containing the usual materials used to complete homework. These materials can include pencils, crayons, eraser, pencil sharpener, paper, ruler, scissors, and glue.
- Encourage children to work independently. Homework teaches responsibility. Through homework, students learn skills they must develop if they are to grow to be independent, successful adults. Encourage your child to be a Self-Directed Learner.
- Motivate children with praise. You can encourage your child to be a Quality Producer by letting him/her know you're proud of them. This will help to increase a child's self confidence, develop a sense of pride in personal achievements, and motivate him/her to do their best work possible.
