If you're looking for homework help, there is a Teacher in the Library at the Branch locations after school.

 

Teachers are available after school to assist both students and parents with academic support and encouragement. Teacher in the Library is offered September thru early June.




Teachers will help students:

  • focus
  • use appropriate learning strategies
  • find the best resources for completing their homework assignments
  • find books appropriate for their reading level

Teachers will help parents:

  • learn how to help their children at home with school assignments
  • by answering questions they have regarding their child’s homework

*Mondays-Tuesdays-Wednesdays, 3:30-6:30 p.m. & Thursdays, 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Teacher in the Library begins the week of Sept. 15 and runs through Dec. 18.
