Homework is an integral part of the instructional program at Wynbrooke. It may consist of activities such as make-up work, meaningful projects, reading, writing, completing a web-based or class assignments. Homework is intended to encourage independent study habits; to develop responsibility and self-discipline, and to reinforce what students have learned in school. The purpose of homework is to provide additional practice that will lead to mastery of grade level standards. At Wynbrooke, homework is required for all students Monday through Thursday and may be assigned on Fridays at the teacher’s discretion.

To help students be successful, parents should:

  • Make sure your child’s homework is fully completed. If your child does not understand a concept, please attach a note for the teacher to review.
  • Remember, in DCSD homework is weighted 45% of your child’s grade in each subject. Poor performance or failure to turn in homework assignments will have a negative impact on his/her overall average.

The following is a schedule of the amount of time your child should be spending on homework:

  • Pre-K- 15 minutes
  • Kindergarten & First grade -30 minutes
  • Second & Third grade -1 hour
  • Fourth & Fifth grade -1½ hours

Do you have access to Infinite Campus?

Infinite Campus is our student information system that can be used to monitor your child’s progress in core subjects. You can log in to check grades, monitor missing assignments, etc. If you have not already done so, please contact the front office to determine how to set up your account. This is an EXCELLENT resource!

Progress Reports for the 9-week window and course syllabi will be distributed later in the week.

Great News! Our PTA Fall Carnival is coming soon!

We are looking forward to our Fall Carnival which will be held on Saturday, October 27th 1:00 pm-5:00 pm. Please visit our website to learn how to purchase tickets this week. This is an event your child will not want to miss!

Calling All Dads!

We are in need of parent volunteers who can assist with assembling bookshelves for our book room. If you have any availability Monday-Friday between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, we could really use your assistance. Please see Coach Gunter or Mr. Champion for more information.

We are looking forward to a great week with our students!

J. Sumler-Faison, Principal
