Image result for rememberHomework is essential and must be completed to your child's best ability. Homework will count as a grade every nine weeks. I expect nothing but the best from all my students, so parents please stress to your child the benefits and importance of doing their homework. 

It challenges, enhances, and show their capabilities.
Moreover, it gives you a glance at what your child is learning and expose to in their class daily. 

Education is the key to success no matter what we desire to become in life.
Encourage learning at all times...It pays to know something in all subject areas. It takes our children farther than we can imagine.
