Homework is designed to reinforce what was learned in class. It should not take all night. My kids are all very busy with sports and sometimes need to make their homework up on the weekend, but it normally doesn't take very long once they have time to sit down and do it.
Many teachers allow students to hold special classroom jobs. These not only teach responsibility but also how other people may feel in the same position. Luckily, not all jobs are permanent in elementary school.
My children started at OHE in Kindergarten. We liked the teachers so much that we chose to keep them there even after moving to another schools area. The teachers really seem to care about the kids, even years after they are no longer in their classroom. OHE uniforms make it easy for the kids to decide what to wear. I love the dedication this school has to its students and their families! OHE is my families school of choice!
The staff is extremely friendly and caring about the students. My daughters teacher keeps in contact with me regularly. The grounds are nice and I love all the new equipment they are getting. I like that this school doesn't have any of those trashy portable unit. My only gripe is that they need to provide more busses or get the pick up area under control. People having to drive down the wrong side of the road to get past isnt safe.
