“ Homework is not simply busy-work assigned to children to keep them occupied at home. Homework assignments and studying serve several educational needs that are essential to receiving a complete education. They provide an opportunity for children to develop self-discipline, study habits, and time management skills. Homework also closes the gap between school and home. Learning should happen at home as well as in school.
Parents can help kids succeed at homework. Setting aside a specific time every day can make homework part of a child's daily routine. Find a quiet and distraction-free area that your child can use when doing his or her homework. Review homework assignments with children and provide support and guidance, but be sure not to do the work for them. If assignments are unclear, communicate with the teacher and ask questions. Keep all supplies students may need at home. Most importantly, parents should provide constant support and encouragement. Demonstrate to children how important homework is by taking an interest and guiding them.”
We are looking forward to a successful and productive school year!
