2019 Mercer Island Martial Arts Annual Homework Challenge!
Objective: To motivate students to develop a habit of getting their homework from school done, and to positively reinforce those who choose to pursue academic excellence. Good leaders are always learning, and building their knowledge base. Education is a lifetime pursuit.
How to Participate: Parents and their kids can register for the homework challenge by phone, email, or in person. Parents every time your child does his/her homework without being asked they can get a check on their chart. Once their chart is completed then they can bring their chart back to us and receive invitations for themselves and friends and family to our Homework Winners/Halloween Party on October 26, 2019 From 12:00-4:00 pm (The party is an open house style party so you can come for an hour or for the whole time if you would like). They will then receive: blue tip for education on their belt. An invitation to the Halloween party and food drive (big bouncy, costume contests, halloween themed games, a Demo from our very own Demo Team, and the first 25 people who turn this in get to break a board).
Frequently Asked questions:
What if my child doesn’t have homework yet? Reading on one’s own daily, and or with a parent can count as completing homework. MI public schools recommend 10 minutes a night reading for kindergarten, and 20 for first grader and so on. Early reading (pre-k and before) and exposure to literature shows direct correlation to later academic success.
What is the cost? Free to those who complete the challenge and a donation of a minim of 10 cans of food to be donated to the food bank
Do I have to be a member of Mercer Island Martial Arts to participate? No, anyone school aged can participate we would like to see all the kids in our community have a fun and successful school year.
