My child has homework?

The Ontario Conference of Catholic Bishops states, "Parents are the primary educators of their children".  Catholic schools can only extend and compliment the educational process which they have begun..." Educational research on excellence in education indicates that the assignment of homework and consistent routines at home for carrying out tasks will improve student achievement.

Homework consists of out-of-class activities that a student is assigned to support classroom work:

Creative: involving research, collecting, building and designing.
Extension: continue/complete work begun in class.
Practice: drill of language, math., and spelling.
Preparation: study for tests, including reading.
