There are two ways students can get help from a teacher after school: individual (or small group) help from a teacher, and participation in homework club:
Teacher Help: Teachers often ask students to stay with them for individual help because homework is incomplete or because a student is struggling with the course work. This help is set up directly with the teacher and usually goes until 3:50 p.m. Teachers generally designate which days are available for this help.
Homework Club: There is a school-wide Homework Club organized and managed by Mrs. Anderson. Students are assigned to 8th grade Homework Club by their teachers, if they have missing assignments. Parents can register their children to attend the school-wide Homework Club, for one day, two days, or three days per week, for a small fee. (Scholarships are available.) Students use the Homework Club to complete assignments, get extra help, make up work, or just have a quiet place to study. All students staying for either Homework Club or the After-School Homework Program report at 2:25 p.m. and are expected to stay until 3:50 p.m. Students are encouraged to bring a healthy snack and drink. Students should either take the late bus or make arrangements to be picked up no later than 4:00.
