    Dear Parents:  This is your child’s homework calendar for the month.  Each day have your child complete the homework in the homework spiral and return to school with the blue homework/behavior folder.   Please date each night’s page.  Help your child get into a nightly routine.  Keep school tools (crayons, pencils, scissors, glue) in a special place and reserve them only for special school work, not for play.  We hope you enjoy this special learning time with your child, and are able to use it to find out about the school day with him or her.   Another important part of the nightly routine is to read out loud to your child at least 5-10 minutes.

    Teach your child the pleasure of books by having that special time together, book in hand, sharing stories and ideas.
