    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.
