Homework is given to supplement and reinforce class work. Much good can be accomplished if parents foster systematic study habits in an environment free from distraction. Homework assignments are not always written, and we ask that equal attention be given to research, daily reading, and memorization. Look through your child’s finished work, and when asked to sign, do so only after you have thoroughly checked the work. Parents should encourage independent study. If you feel that your child does not understand the independent work, help the teacher by sending a note explaining the difficulty. This allows the teacher to see the errors and re-teach the skill needed. Homework assignments should be neatly done and handed in on time. Homework will not normally be assigned on nights of school-wide events such as Back to School Night.
