How Learning Makes You Stronger By Audrey Guevara
Have you ever wondered if reading or math makes you any stronger? Well…I have the answer to that question. Yes. Reading and math make you stronger because they’re both learning. Learning is strong and powerful. It helps you live a happier life. Learning is a necessity of life.
This is an example: “Did you know that Beethoven’s music helps you focus and learn?” See…that’s learning. Now STOP! Think for a moment. You just learned something. Think about how far that will get you in life. Now I know some of you don’t think that one little lesson will help you anywhere in life. Well, think again! Just keep learning, and you will see how far learning got you and how far it can still get you.
Still, there is much more to learning. You can learn from pretty much anything! You can learn strategy, and more!
There’s still more I need to learn. And while I am, I’ll be sure to have fun!

The Importance of Homework
Homework is an integral part of your child’s educational process. The assignment of homework serves two purposes. The first and obvious is practice and application of academic skills. Equally important and often overlooked is that homework is an exercise in developing responsibility and good study habits. These are skills that will be essential to being successful in school. Parent support and supervision of homework is an extremely important factor towards building good study habits and personal responsibility. We believe that, as parents and teachers working together, we can build success for your child. Please assist us by ensuring that your child has a quiet area and sufficient time daily to complete his/her assigned homework tasks. Thank you.
