Homework Helpers

At St. Francis School we offer a program called Homework Helpers for kindergartners through sixth graders.  It is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-3:45 and will begin on Tuesday, September 11.  Students participating may drop in when needed (with parent permission) or stay consistently after school on all of those days to get extra help with any homework they may have. Teachers rotate for the supervision of this program; therefore, your child may not have their own classroom teacher for the Homework Helpers session. We ask that the time not be used for independent reading/AR because that is something that is quite easy to accomplish at home. We want to key in on helping students acquire their math, reading, and content area skills. If students decide during the school day that they would like to stay for Homework Helpers, we will allow them to use the phone to get permission from a parent. We also ask that students are picked up promptly at 3:45 at the main door. Homework Helpers is an ideal time to get that extra needed help in any subject area. Please let us know if you have any questions about Homework Helpers.
