Week 10: The Start of a New Quarter

Welcome to the first week of the second quarter. Our students should have settled into school by this point. Hopefully, they have established good study habits so that the rest of the year is a breeze. If not, it is never too late for anyone, PK-8th, to improve study habits. For our youngest students, families should set aside a time every school day to read together and practice writing, coloring, and cutting. These activities grow learning stamina as well as practice fine motor skills. Kindergarten through second graders should practice sight words, read books, practice fine motor skills, as well as doing their assigned homework. Doing school activities at home (homework) teaches a learning habit that will benefit your child as they grow older.


Older students, especially, should have a designated homework/study time and space. What works best for each child varies. Some need a quiet area, and others do better where they can be around others. Even if your student says they have no homework, they should still be expected to study, read, or do some type of learning activity. Again, this is to develop a habit.


Parents play an important role in helping your student foster good study habits. Hold them accountable for doing their schoolwork. Help them study for a test. Check their grades regularly in RenWeb. Communicate with your child’s teacher if they are struggling.


The start of a new quarter is a new start. Help your children have a good one!


God’s Blessings,

Delaine Schiestel
