Lambert High School Volunteer Tutoring

The Lambert HS Key Club has organized volunteer high school students who wish to tutor current RMS students. This could be extremely helpful during the COVID pandemic. Tutoring will help students who are academically falling behind, especially those at home with limited resources. This will also be an exciting way for middle school students to learn from and gain mentors through connections made with local LHS students!
