Willy Wonka a Success!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in last night’s musical. The show was outstanding! In all, the gym was full with over 350 people in attendance. The evening was successful due to the students, staff, and families who worked together and gave countless hours over the past six months for this school-wide project. Everyone’s collective efforts continue to make Mt. View School a great place to learn.

Homework Policy and Review of Expectations

April 11, 2014

Dear Families,

According to Board of Education policy 6154, homework is to be assigned and completed each night. Homework is expected to be worthwhile to the children, extend the classroom learning experience, develop initiative, responsibility, and self-direction and acquaint parents with the work students are doing in school. Additionally, homework should be graded by staff and families are to be informed when grades are being adversely affected by poor homework performance. Board policy states Kindergarten students are expected to complete at least 45 minutes of homework per week, grades 1-3 are expected to complete at least 150 minutes of homework per week, and grades 4-5 are expected to complete at least 175 minutes per week.

We are seeing a large number of students who are not completing, to the best of their ability, their nightly homework. In an effort to improve upon this, we are asking for your help. Students in Kindergarten and Grade 1 use their ‘communication folder’ for their homework and school notes. Students in Grades 2-5 write their homework in their agenda book each night. Parents are asked to review the communication folder or agenda book and homework each night indicating that the homework is complete. This shared responsibility between school and family is essential for each child’s success.

Completing all assigned homework builds upon the REACH characteristics we teach each day. Specifically, completing homework demonstrates responsibility and putting forward one’s best effort. We will continue to monitor individual homework completion and recognize those who complete 100% of their homework each night. We appreciate your efforts to support your child by checking their agenda book and homework each night. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or you are invited to speak with me directly.

Sincerely,

David J. Huber
