MATH tutoring

is available every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
Students should report to Room 216 with math textbook, current work, and questions.  Parents must give prior permission. Please arrange to pick up your student at the front entrance promptly at 4 pm.

Before the holiday break our students held our third annual "Penny Wars" competition between the grade levels and homerooms.  Our students came through tremendously to support Children's Hospital and the Shayne Iverson Fund.  The students beat last years total and raised over $8300.  The students reached their $8000 goal, so Mr. Simpson was duct-tapped to the cafe post on December 23 for all three lunches.  Thanks to each and every student who participated.  It is awesome to see our students come together for a good cause.
