After School Tutoring
Every other Friday, I will be
holding After School Tutoring for
any/ every Scholar to attend. This
is NOT mandatory; however, if you
feel that your child could use a

the perfect opportunity! Sessions
will be held from 4:00pm-5:00pm.
You would need to pick your child
up from school no later than
5:00pm! IF you are interested,
please contact me at:

this as reading each night boosts
