The National Junior Honor Society is providing tutoring and homework help on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school.  The sessions will end at 2:40, so make sure to arrange for your child’s transportation home.  Tuesdays the tutoring will be in Mrs. Doemel’s room and on Thursdays in Ms. Farbo’s room.  If tutoring is cancelled for any reason, an announcement will be made and teachers will be notified by email.
