Message from the Principal:

Parents/Guardians Make a Difference

Let your teen know that there is no such thing as “no homework”. When your teen is in high school, there is always something she can do to keep up with her schoolwork.  So if she comes home from school and announces that she has no homework, encourage her to spend 30 minutes to an hour on one of the following activities:

Get started on a long-term project. It’s never too early. And it’s great to be able to start something when there’s less pressure.
Read a chapter for a second time, or look back through last week’s notes.  She’ll be amazed at how much better the information will stick in her mind if she looks at it when she’s relaxed.
Create a test from her books and notes. Or ask you to quiz her.
Practice math problems. Or look up some vocabulary words the teacher hasn’t yet assigned.
Write something. It could be a story, a poem, a journal entry or a letter to a friend.
Read something. Whether it’s a classic book or a news magazine, any reading is worthwhile.
