School District Policy: “Every elementary classroom teacher will require regularly

assigned homework based upon classroom instruction no less than four times a week; … Because

homework is an important part of the instructional program, failure to submit homework will be

reflected in the student’s grade.” The purpose of homework is to:

-Strengthen basic skills

-Reinforce study habits

-Extend classroom learning

-Develop initiative, responsibility, and self-direction

-Stimulate independent thinking

-Increase range and scope of interests

-Foster worthwhile use of leisure time

Extracurricular Activities
There are many extracurricular activities that have taken place at Elkin School throughout the years, including the Waterford Reading Club, Yearbook/Art Club, Math 24 Club, Cheerleading Club, Safety Patrol and Student Council.  Please encourage your child to get involved in any current extracurricular activities.  These EC clubs usually meet after school once a week for about an hour.  If they are available this year and you are interested in getting started, simply show interest and speak with your child’s teacher.
