Establish a Life Work Ethic!

The Homework Habit needs to be truly owned by a student. Homework must be given on a daily basis and in amounts that a child perceives as "do-able".
At Scholars' Hall the "rule of thumb" for the total amount of homework assigned, each school night, is 5 minutes X's their grade. A Grade 3 student will get 15 minutes of homework while a Grade 11 students will have 55 minutes of homework. Scholars' parents know that all homework will be checked (and corrected) daily.

Tips for a Great Year

Eat Smart Food for breakfast because it is the most important meal for peak academic performance. Serve them an egg sandwich or melted cheese on toast. The protein-carb combo keeps kids energized. Toast up whole-grain bread or frozen whole-grain waffles. The fiber they deliver will keep kid's stomachs satisfied longer and deliver loads of glucose which fuels brain power.

Emma Tonellato, one of our elite athletes at Scholars' Hall, in grade 11, has been training with the University of Guelph coach and applying her vigorous training schedule towards her grade 11 physical education credit. Emma competed this past weekend in Owen Sound at the Junior Lifesaving Provincial competition and brought home 5 gold medals. Emma is training towards making the Canadian team to compete at World's in 2016.  She is well on her way to earning that spot. She trains 9 times a week doing both dry-land, swimming and track. This is possible because of the uniquely flexible semester system at Scholars' Hall.  Congratulations Emma!
