St Joseph's Happy Family

Homework Guidelines

We recognize that school is only a part of a child’s learning process.  Therefore, we encourage reading, family discussions, critical selection of television viewing, listening to good music and attending cultural activities.

Homework should not be busy work, but an extension of the learning process in the classroom.  Homework can enhance the study skills of the student and reinforce concepts learned during the school day.  
Parents are encouraged to provide their child/children with a suitable atmosphere, specific time and regular location in which to study.

Television, radio, and extended phone conversation are highly discouraged while a student is studying.  Parents should take an active interest in their child’s work.  Parents are encouraged to regularly ask about homework and to check to see if assignments have been completed.  This does not mean doing it for them.  Giving the child too much help may destroy the spirit of independence, creativity, perseverance, and initiative which are necessary in the child’s scholastic training.
