HOMEWORK CLUB:  Each Thursday from 3:20-4:00 in my class for $10.  Send $10 cash in an envelope or zip-bag along with a note detailing what homework you want your child to work on during this time.  For instance:  practice Spelling; Read; Math---be specific.  This is not a tutoring time, but a time in which I am available to assist with completing homework and during which your child can use classroom technology/supplies.  If the card/$10 is not in the home folder Tuesday morning (or Monday), remaining children will be sent to After Care.
