ACADEMIC NEWS

Student Learning Opportunities

We want to inform you of some other student learning opportunities offered to Yale Jr. High School students. First, during our JAZ time (Tuesday and Thursday from 1:54 - 2:22pm), we will offer peer tutoring a few times per month. The students will be notified via announcements (these announcements are posted daily on Facebook) to which specific dates we will hold tutoring. Also, beginning on October 21, we will offer our T.H.E. (Tutoring, Homework, Enrichment) program from 2:30 - 3:30 pm in our media center. There will be a certified and highly qualified teacher supervising and both junior high school and high school honor society students tutoring students who want assistance. Finally, we purchased an online enrichment program called MobyMax. This program provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in all core subject areas. Once enrolled, the student will take a brief placement test in MobyMax in the subject area. Once complete, the student will be given assignments and enrichment activities at their identified level. The student can even earn game time that is built directly into MobyMax! Students can access MobyMax at home, thus providing an additional learning opportunity without interfering with their elective class.
