From the Principal's Desk

Welcome to all members of our Mother Seton School community as we begin the 2019-2020 school year. I hope you had a restful summer and are ready for an exciting new school year. I look forward to working with you as we all work to help our students grow academically and spiritually.

Homework can often be difficult for students, especially at the beginning of the school year when routines are not fully established. From remembering to write the assignment down to remembering to bring home the necessary books and turning in the homework to the teacher, there is a lot of room for error, and GROWTH throughout the school year. I find the below Homework Chain, that I adapted from an article by John Taylor I recently read, to be a great resource for establishing a homework routine for students of all ages and abilities. 

THE HOMEWORK CHAIN

{   }1. Realize an assignment has been given.

{   }2. Understand the assignment.

{   }3. Record the assignment accurately.

{   }4. Understand how to perform the assignment correctly.

{   }5. Check to bring correct books home.

{   }6. Arrive home with materials and the homework assignment.

{   }7. Begin the homework assignment.

{   }8. Complete the homework assignment.

{   }9. Check assignment for accuracy, neatness and completion.

{   }10. Set completed assignment in a special place.

{   }11. Take completed homework to school.

{   }12. Arrive at class with completed homework.

{   }13. Turn in completed homework on time.
