enrich the subject matter presented in class. When homework is assigned

interest and involvement is vital to the child’s success in school.
Homework completion is a shared responsibility. Parents should provide
an appropriate study environment and allow adequate time for homework
completion. Families should offer encouragement and guidance for the
student. Homework may include “standing” assignments such as weekly
spelling tests, reading in a subject area, practicing math facts, etc.
These types of ongoing assignments are important in developing
self-directed study habits.
