Roseland Christian School – Home Bulletin

Dear Parents:

Page 2

Calendar of Events for October

Thank you for raising several questions about the need for, and the amount of, homework assigned at Roseland Christian School. We believe that homework provides the necessary means to reinforce the skills, techniques, and information to which the child is exposed during school hours. Homework can provide the necessary repetition (drill) to promote skill mastery. In addition, it has been shown that distribution of practice periods of virtually any skill yields results superior to massed practice. Grades PreK – Homework is sent home twice a month on Tuesday and must be returned on Friday.

October 26

Join us for Chapel Wednesday @ 10:00 a.m.

Students may have a light assignment or have make-up work that needs to be completed on Wednesday night. I hope this information has answered your question about our homework policy.
