• Are you struggling in a particular class? Try these FIVE things to help!

    1. Meet with the teacher before or after school.  Even 10 minutes every day adds up to an extra 50 minutes of learning for you each week.  Many times it is a one-to-one ratio with the teacher during these times.
    2. Visit your teacher during their office hours throughout Soar Time (Two 30-minute opportunities are offered weekly).
    3. Ask to see your teacher during Thursday Nest Time (pre-arrange prior to 2 pm on the Wednesday before Nest Time).
    4. Attend after-school Academic Assist in room 122 from 2:25 pm - 3:25 pm Monday - Thursday.
    5. Email your teacher to ask specific questions about assignments that you are struggling to complete.

    Taking advantage of all of the above suggestions would lend you almost SEVEN hours of extra help a week!
