Pride Period: Academic Assistance Available for Students

 

 

Tutoring – Are you having difficulty writing that paragraph for Language Arts? Still have questions about last night’s math homework? Do you need a hand getting organized for the day?

Pride Period is your answer to those questions and more.

Every Tuesday through Friday, from 7:40 to 8:00 AM there are teachers waiting to help you with Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or organization. In the mornings you can get a pass from teachers with Hall Duty to go back to the academic wings for help. You can also ask your teacher for a pass the day before you go to get help. For the afternoon, the process is the same … all you need is a pass to drop in and get assistance from a content teacher.

Pride Period, where teachers are here to help!
