     Dear Parents/Guardians:

    The new school year is in full swing, and all classes have their procedures and policies, including homework, in place. I often hear that homework completion causes a lot of stress within the home.   We don’t want to create tension in the home because of homework. It is our goal for our students to feel proud of what they did in the classroom and to practice what they learned at home. Homework can benefit our students in many ways. It can help children develop good study habits and organizational skills; develop self-discipline and independence; develop a sense of responsibility; practice and reinforce skills and concepts learned in the classroom; and provide a communication link between home and school.

    Homework assignments typically should not require parental involvement for completion. It is most important that parents create a learning environment in the home that allows children to complete their homework. We encourage parents to:

    • Establish a physical space for your child to complete their homework in an area where you can monitor them, such as the kitchen table;
    • Set an alarm clock and have the whole family observe quiet time during homework time;
    • Provide general oversight of the homework process, ensuring that your child is completing their assignments; however, it is important for your child to be doing his/her own work;
    • Let your child struggle with their homework. Our students have learned this year that struggling is an important part of learning and helps to grow their brains. However, if your child has given his/her best effort, make sure you communicate with the teacher that they struggled with a note written on the homework page. This allows the teacher to see where your child needs additional support.

    While we want all students to develop good study skills and practice their learning at home, it is very important that our students should not be sitting at home doing homework for an extended period of time. Students in grades K-2 should not be doing homework more than 30 minutes a day, and our students in grades 4-6 should not be doing homework for more than 60 minutes a day. If there is a problem with homework completion on a consistent basis, please work with your child’s teacher to come up with a plan to support your child.   Our students are off to a great start this year. Thank you for supporting the home/school connection.

    Lisa Denham, Principal
