After School Intervention

After School Intervention continues to grow as more teachers are using this campus system to help support their students. These first three weeks have seen lots of student questions answered, classroom work completed, and many students on their way to experiencing academic success. We are excited to see how this programs grows as a support for both our teachers and our students.


Giving effort and meeting timelines are habits that can be developed. Please continue to encourage your student to strive to give their best effort and submit each assignment on-time or before the due date.


We appreciate your support as we challenge our students to set, raise, and achieve personal learning goals.
