The appropriate amount of homework can only be determined by each class and course subject. When it comes to homework relevance over amount is what is desired. My son's teacher seemed to have given relevant him assignments. I would say home assignments should be interesting. In his Digital Tech, Marketing and Modern Language class h/w was but relevant and interesting.
I would have to say based on my student's experiences in his freshman year, compassion, caring and empathy has been developed. Listening to him talk about lessons and discussions he's had in his Lit and Mordern Language classes as well as his fine arts classes and in marching band displays the development of a compassionate and caring students.
My student is completing his freshman year at McEachern HS. He has enjoyed it an has no major complaints. I have always received timely and valuable feedback from his teachers. The teachers I have come in contact with over the last year have all been willing to assist and provide support. Before and after school additional coaching in academic classes is available. My son's counselor has also been very supportive. When I've reached out to her, she has responded. Overtime I am on the campus or call the front office and support staff have been friendly and helpful.
To The McEachern High School Band Directors, I am grateful. Discipline, integrity, respect, hard work, talent and fun are what the McEachern band program is about. The students in this program work hard and they do so because they want to be involved in this phenomenal arts program. The students would not be so dedicated if it were not for the band directors (Sodders, Fraizer, Cananzi). The lessons taught and friendships forged here will stay with the students as they move forward in life.
