Homework is cool
    Why do I assign homework? I believe homework is important because it is a
    valuable tool in helping students makes the most of their experience in
    school. Homework helps reinforce what has been learned in class, prepares
    students for upcoming lessons, teaches responsibility and helps students
    develop positive study habits.

    Student’s homework responsibilities: I expect students to do their best job
    on each homework assignment. I expect homework to be neat. I expect all
    homework to be completely finished by class time the following day.

    Teacher’s homework responsibilities: I will check all homework assignments
    and record them. Since students learn from their mistakes and the mistakes
    of others, the students and I will go over any questions that gave them
    difficulty in solving. I strongly believe in the value of positive support
    therefore I will give students praise and other incentives when they do
    their homework.

    Parent’s homework responsibilities: Parents are the keys to making homework
    a positive experience for their children. Therefore, I ask your help in
    making homework a top priority, provide necessary supplies and a quiet
    homework environment, set aside a daily homework time, provide praise and
    support, not allow your child to avoid homework and contact me via email at
    theresa.bell@wcsdny.org or phone(845)298-5100 ext. 31029 or 50534 
    if you notice a problem.  
    As a parent, I know that there may be a night when family responsibilities
    or activities make it impossible for your child to do a homework
    assignment. If there is a legitimate reason why your child was not able to
    complete the homework, please send a note to me on the day the homework was
    due letting me know why it was not completed and we can discuss it.
    The note must be signed by the parent.

    Thanks for your advance support

    Mrs. Bell-Groucher
