Tutoring

    Just a reminder that Mrs. Brown and I tutor during lunch every Tuesday and Thursday during our lunch. Students need to bring any work, homework, test corrections, morning math, AND a pencil with them. We allow students to work during this time and we are there to assist, answer questions, help individually, or small groups. Your child is NOT required to come to these session, but it is strongly suggested if they need assistance or have questions. 

 
As our Chromebooks begin to come home next week, I have updated my "links" page so students can better navigate specific links for practice materials. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great weekend! Mrs. Scandlyn
