Students are responsible for writing their assignments for each class in their planner on a daily basis.
 

Homework--How parents can help:

 

1.  Choose a Homework Helper—designate someone who can help with homework.  Choose someone who is knowledgeable about a subject or someone who is available during homework time.  This homework helper may be a family member or someone outside the family.

 

2. Designate a Homework Time—choose a homework time which allows your child to unwind after school, yet allows adequate time for homework completion.  This time should remain the same each night.

 

3.  Designate a Homework Spot—create an office or homework station where your child can work free from distractions.  This study center should be well-lighted, quiet, and should provide access to needed materials and adult help, if needed.

 

4.  Stay Involved—show an interest and be involved in your child’s education.  Check her/his planner each night to ensure that assignments are being completed.  Contact your child’s teachers right away if you have a concern regarding your child’s progress.

 

5.  Praise your child-reinforce homework successes with positive comments.

 

6.  Check their Planner—The Homework Hotline and Calendar are great resources to compare with your child's planner.
