Room 351: This is the GPS home for HAL. We use this room for HAL student seminars during GPS. We may also send a pass for specific HAL students to come see us. This is also the location of the PEER TUTORING CENTER during GPS.

Peer Tutoring Center: During GPS, room 351 is staffed by HAL students who have been selected to assist students with various classes. Please utilize this time for your students who may need extra help.

Peer Tutoring Sign-up Process:

-Send an email to Mrs. Menard or Mrs. Brewer stating:

1) the name of the student

2) the subject they need tutoring for

3) the date they will go to 351

-Send an email to each student's GPS teacher, communicating that they will report directly to 351 for GPS that day
