Homework plays an important role in your child's learning. It allows for reflecton, consolidation and preparation for what comes next. It also involves you as a parent in your child's education and provides a vital link between home and school.
In the youngest part of the school, homework consists mainly of nightly reading with parents. From Kindergarten through Grade 5, assignments are given on a weekly basis. This encourages your child to begin developing time-management skills and perseverence, while also giving you flexibility for after school activities.
Middle and High School
In the Middle and High School, homework is put on a timetable so that students and parents know what to expect and can plan appropriately.
Encouraging your child to develop positive homework habits and a constructive attitude is an important way to help your child get the most out of assignments and projects. The resulting pride in a job well done pays benefits for years.
You are always welcome to talk to your child's teacher for specific details.
