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!

Mrs. McD’s Pick of the Week: When Susan overhears two other students talking about finding out the secret of their local haunted house, she asks them to let her join them.  They find out that the house is more than just haunted.  Yes, it has a ghost, but the house itself is a living thing:  It can keep people out, or it can choose to keep them in the house.  Susan and her new friends get way more than they bargained for.  Want to know more?  Check out A STIR OF BONES, BY Nina Hoffman
