Sorry, but there will not be extra help math on Tuesdays anymore. My schedule is too full to fit it in. The students were great to work with and always gave their best effort. I will truly miss working with those smaller groups after school. I would also like to add a big "THANK YOU" to Mrs. Davis for the generous time she spent teaching the students on Tuesdays. Her dedication as a life long teacher is still shining through in retirement!!!
