Homework and Discipline Policy:

Parents please do the homework with your kids at home. I wish to spend all my time with the kids, not with the book.

Every student is expected to come to class prepared to participate. This entails reading the assigned homework and answering the questions ahead of class time. Students are also expected to memorize the Quran lesson including Arabic vocabulary each week. In the case that you miss a class, any changes to the homework schedule (from the syllabus) will be posted on the class website. Every week, I review previous weeks lessons with the students.

In the case that students do not complete their homework repeatedly, parents will be contacted and required to come in for a meeting with the teacher.
