Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School Homework Expectations

6th grade

Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School Homework Policy:

The Oakfield-Alabama Elementary School allows our students to shine by making efficient use of time during the school day. Our goal is for families and children to spend time together by participating in a variety of activities, in addition to scholastic ones, in order to develop the total child. Weekly practice will be assigned for students to continue their learning at home. Students are encouraged to set weekly goals for themselves to promote intrinsic motivation. Through the habits of Beginning with the End in Mind and Putting First Things First, students are able to manage time and take responsibility for their own learning.

The OA 6th grade teachers are committed to create classrooms where the best instructional practices are consistently implemented to promote increased student growth and achievement.  Research has also indicated that there are positive academic outcomes stemming from parent involvement ranging from benefits in early childhood to adolescence and beyond.  We encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education.  Below are some ideas and resources you can use at home to help your child reach their educational potential.
