Practice Makes Perfect


No team can improve without daily practice--here you will find out all you need to know about homework

Policy

Homework is assigned daily, Monday through Thursday nights.  There will be homework most nights.  All homework is due the morning after it is assigned, except for spelling packets and Paragraph of the Week, which are due Friday.  Failure to complete homework on time will result in study hall during lunch recess.

Tips

  • Set up a scheduled time and place for homework each afternoon.  Just like sports teams have regular practice times, you should too!  It makes it a lot easier to finish your homework when you know when and where you will complete your work.
  • Give every assignment your best effort.  If you are not sure how to do your work, ask an adult or older sibling for help.  You can always call your homework buddy from class as well.  If all else fails and you are still stuck, attempt to do the work.  The following morning, tell Mrs. Daems that you need extra help and we will arrange a time for you to get the help you need.  Remember, you must do your work to the best of your ability.  Not doing any of your work will result in study hall.
  • Write down all homework assignments in your daily planner.  It makes it a lot easier to know what to do at home if you have all your assignments written down.  Don't rely on remembering what you were supposed to do.  Take responsibility and write it down; you'll be glad you did!
