Get $100 Toward Summer Tutoring Programs
As many of you know, Revolution Prep is a national leader in online tutoring and test prep, and with summer approaching they’re giving away a $100 gift card to all Minnehaha Academy families!
We know summer should be spent relaxing, but summer is also a fantastic time for sophomores and juniors to get ahead on test prep – and it’s important for all students to stay engaged with academics, as research shows extended time off can lead to many students falling behind.
So please take advantage of this $100 toward the tutoring program of your choice. Whether it’s private tutoring, a test prep course, or Revolution’s unlimited Homework Help program, there is no purchase necessary. Just $100 toward your child’s summer enrichment.
Click Here to claim your gift card. Make sure to redeem it by June 30, 2018. And if you have any questions or want to learn more reach out to our school’s dedicated Academic Advisor, Jeanette Brink at (708) 300-9276, or Jeanette.Brink@revolutionprep.com
Decision Day Lunch
May happens to be Mental Health Awareness Month, so it is the perfect time to share one of our favorite TED Talks about the positive (yes, you read that right) effects of stress. Definitely worth watching!
