Remembering 911

Monday,  September 11, 2017, is the anniversary of attack on the World Trade Center.  Many Americans died in the attack and our nation has changed since this date.  On Monday, September 11, 2017, faculty, staff, and students are being asked to wear red, white, and blue or patriotic clothing to show support of those who lost their lives on that day.  A moment of silence will be observed as well.

Developing Good Homework & Study Habits

Create an environment that is conducive to doing homework at a young age.  Chilren need a consistent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that is quiet, without distraction, and promotes study.

Schedule ample time for homework; build this time into choices about participation in after school activities.

Establish a household rule that the TV and other electronic distractions stay off during homework time.

Supervise computer and internet use.

Be available to answer questions and offer assistance; but never do a child’s homework for him/her.
