Back to School Homework Tips for Families
Dear Northwood Families,
It is with great pleasure that I say welcome back to school with the hopes that your time away has been enjoyable, renewing, adventurous, and filled with fun and relaxation. As we settle into these first few weeks of school, both teachers and students are already hard at work building relationships, creating healthy learning routines, and establishing expectations for success.
Parents and guardians, you can also help to make this a fantastic school year by making sure your children are in the classroom, focused on learning, and displaying a commitment to the work effort needed for growth. As expected, this means that students will probably be assigned homework and/or assignments that can help enhance and reinforce their learning and growth. No doubt, these homework expectations can sometimes create high stress experiences for children and families from time to time. As such, I would encourage you to read this short article related to navigating these interactions with a positive and calm approach. I think you might find it helpful!
However, should you need some assistance, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, counselor, or one of the administrators for help! I am sure you would agree that when our students succeed, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to society and the communities in which they live. We look forward to working with you all this coming school year!
