Grades 5-12: After School Homework Help 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Homework Help is provided by a credentialed teacher from 3:30-4:30 Monday-Thursday, free of charge.   Students meet in the cafe.  There is a snack provided.

On Fridays, any student in 5th-12th grade who has a D or F due to missing assignments, is required to stay from 1-3:00 to complete those assignments.   A credentialed teacher will be on hand to provide help.  

Anyone who is not taking advantage of the provided help or being disruptive to others will be asked to call their parents and go home. Brenda will meet with student and parents to help them make a plan either to: 1) Change their behavior so that they can use the free help provided or 2) Complete missing assignments and homework at home.
