• Research has shown that regularly scheduled homework is an important factor for students' success in school. Time spent together helping your child with schoolwork will also give him/her the quality time all children need and facilitate their learning.

    To make homework time productive, remember to:

    • Work together and have fun!
    • Make it a set time each day.
    • Provide uninterrupted time and a quiet place.
    • Be positive! Stress success, not failure.
    • Encourage, don't discourage.
    • Reward homework with positive actions and words!
