Homework Club

The Homework Club and Tutoring is a unique program where children work on their homework and receive support from an Ontario Certified Teacher. Children work specifically on skills that they are currently working on in school. They work on language and math skills that thread throughout the curriculum. They research and work on upcoming projects in science & social studies. One of the teachers is French and English bilingual aiding senior grade students and French students with their homework. The growing success of the program is due to increasing the child's self-esteem in being ready for the next day and taking pride in their own accomplishments. As a result, children learn to monitor their learning, their time and their work through constant use of their agenda. This creates a constant routine that we hope they will carry through their educational career. Parents now could have time to spend in pleasure reading with their children, family time and extra curricular activities.

We will do running records on all students under Grade 3 and Casi Assessments on Senior students. In reading we use Alpha Kids, CASI and the ongoing reading program Reading a-z which any parent can attain in their website (www.readinga_z.com). This program is available in English, French and Spanish. Please provide us with any necessary information about upcoming subject topics per month or term (monthly newsletters, etc). We will keep these in their student files. When they do not have homework it will remind us of what may be coming next.
