Homework Expectations

Every resource student is required to utilize an assignment notebook - daily.  Assignment notebooks should be signed by parents each evening, indicating that you are aware of your child’s assignments and that your child has completed the assigned homework for that evening.

If your child is not completing his/her homework each evening, the homeroom teacher/resource teacher will indicate if your child has completed an assignment by writing “completed” next to the assignment – along with the teacher signature. If “completed” is not written next to the assignment, your child has not finished the assignment and needs to do so.

Each student is required to have their notebook signed by an adult from home. This notebook is used so that teachers and parents are able to check a student’s progress each day. By signing the notebook, you as a parent, are aware of your son/daughter’s progress each day as any missing assignments are listed on this page as well. Should missing assignments become an issue, a teacher signature will also be required after each class listed, indicating that the homework listed is correct and due the next day.

I ask that you ACTIVELY check your child’s assignment sheet/notebook by doing the following:

  • Ask your child to see his/her assignment sheet/notebook every evening.

  • Ask to see all assignments listed.

  • Review the assignments listed and check for accuracy as well as assignment completion.

  • Ask your child questions about the assignment(s).

  • Ask your child when he/she will be tested on the concepts covered.

  • Remember – if there is any confusion on an assignment send your child for extra assistance immediately!

  • Refuse to sign the sheet if all work is not complete.
Feel free to write a note if you have a question, comment or concern. I read each notebook, every morning. Notebooks are perfect for communication between home and school and are most important!
