Memorial School After-School Homework & Study Club: The 2015 Fall Session of Memorial School’s After-School Homework & Study Club for Grades 3-5 will begin on Thursday, October 1st and run through Tuesday, December 1st. The purpose of the club is to help children develop effective study skills while providing them with the time, structure, and supervision needed to successfully complete their homework at school. The club will meet two afternoons per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 2:30 until 3:30. The fee will be $80. (Please note: there will be no sessions on: Nov. 10th, and 26th.)
Memorial School After-School Homework & Running Club: The 2015 Fall Session of Memorial School’s After-School Homework & Running Club for Grades 1-2 will begin on Thursday, October 1st and run through Tuesday, December 1st. The main goal for the club is to provide a fun opportunity for students to become healthy and active, but also a time where students are able to complete homework with access to teacher support. This is the start of a new club and we hope to combine two great activities to make learning more fun. The club will meet two afternoons per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 2:30 until 3:30. The fee will be $80. (Please note: there will be no sessions on: Nov. 10th, and 26th.)
