PCA Parents,
The National Honor Society would like you to be aware of a tutoring program that we are implementing beginning Thursday, October 1, 2015 for students grades 4-8th, between 3-4pm. The purpose of the After-School Tutoring Sessions is to allow older students who possess excellent work habits and learning strategies to mentor younger students who are struggling in a particular area. This time can be used to study for tests, complete homework assignments, work on reports – any school related area that the teacher indicates as helpful for your student that can have a measure of success in a one hour tutoring session.

The After-School Tutoring Session is a “drop-in”, meaning that other than to initially register your child to participate in the program, you will not have to sign up for a particular week. Either your child’s teacher will contact you or you can request participation. You will also be asked to submit a permission form which will be filed in a Tutoring Folder. Click HERE to print the permission form. This will be “active” for as long as your student participates. If your child does not make use of the Tutoring Sessions for four weeks in a row, the file will become inactive to make room for another student who needs help (NHS can take up to 32 registrations). Please understand that After-School Tutoring Sessions are for tutoring only, not after-care.

We are dedicated to making the After-School Tutoring Sessions run smoothly and efficiently. We hope you will partner with us to make this happen. Please be aware that there are occasional Thursdays when high school students are unavailable to tutor, so please pay special attention to the tutoring dates. The following are the dates up through the second marking period:

    October 1,8,15, 22, 29
    November 12, 19
    December 3, 10, 17
    January 7, 14

Please also note the dates that we will not be having tutoring:

    November 5 (Half Day – Conferences)
    November 26 (Thanksgiving Break)
    December 24, 31 (Christmas Break)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
