Shining Star Homework Information

The students that attend the afternoon session of the program are allotted time to start and hopefully complete their homework.  The lead teacher circulates while the students are working and guides them when the students need assistance.  If you would like your child to work on their homework while attending the program, please print out, complete, and return the Homework Permission Slip found at the bottom of this page and return it to a Shining Star staff member.  Thank you!

Homework Guidelines
  • The homework is checked by the Shining Star lead teacher when the students are finished.  However, we stress that the parents/guardians check the homework as well.  There are a lot of students and it can become difficult to give every student individual attention.
  • Unfortunately, we are limited with the amount of time we have. All projects and studying are to be done at home.  
  • It is the responsibility of the student to do their homework. We will not check planners, go through backpacks, or plea with students to start their assignments.  When we form a line for homework, it is your child’s responsibility to get in that line.
  • It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work on homework in a quiet classroom.  We ask that all of the children are prepared, ready to work, and respectful of the room and the items in the room.
  • We understand that students need time to adjust to their new schedules, classmates, and teachers at the beginning of a new school year. For the first two weeks of school, students will be permitted to go back to their classrooms (accompanied by a staff member) if they forget any books, homework, etc.  However, after those two weeks, they are not allowed back to their classrooms for any reason. The teachers provide your children with plenty of time before the end of the school day to gather up all of their belongings. We try to instill qualities in your children, and personal responsibility is no exception. Please stress to your children to double check their backpacks before they leave their classroom for the day.
