  • After school tutoring is now available for your child.  Teachers are recommending students for tutoring by using THIS FORM and filling in the top half of the form and sending the form home for the parent/guardian to fill out and return.  Tutoring is available for 1 hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3:30-4:30 PM.)  Bus transportation is provided based on the information submitted on the form.  We are asking that students who are recommended for tutoring commit to at least one day a week but may stay both days and continue in the tutoring program until their grade improves in the course. If you have questions, concerns, or feel your child would benefit from this program and they have not been recommended by their teacher, please contact Janice Grant or Stephanie Graves.
