Homework serves to reinforce subject matter that has
been taught in the classroom. Each teacher will outline her homework policy at
the beginning of the school year. Doing schoolwork at home encourages students
to develop independent study habits and therefore, should be the childs
responsibility. However, parental involvement with a childs homework gives the
parent an awareness of strengths and weaknesses and is valuable in the
educational process. Parents can help by following a few simple guidelines:
a regular place for doing homework away from household traffic and noise.
a regular time for working on assignments.
the child to complete the assigned work.
homework for completeness and correctness.
When children are absent, inquiry regarding
make-up work should be directed to the teacher by note or telephone. Request
for assignments to be sent home must be submitted by 10 a.m.
