This program provides a time for students to work on their schoolwork on the computers and to provide a structured homework time with a certified teacher. Additionally, it is also a place for students to meet to work on group classwork activities. This program is for students who have; been absent and need to make-up work, redo assignments, or need to retake quizzes or tests, then necessary arrangements can be made with their individual teachers to have those items completed on Tuesdays with Mrs. Dietz in room 17 and Thursdays with Mrs. Bruns in room 203. Taking advantage of this opportunity should help students with their grades. If for any reason this class is not held we will make an announcement, and place a reminder on the school website and facebook page.
Announcements are updated daily, so check it out if you ever have any questions about school activities. School closure information will also be updated as soon as received on our school website.
