Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade can come to Homework Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the middle school cafeteria.  Homework Club offers a quiet atmosphere to study with a variety of teachers available to assist, if necessary. For your convenience, and to limit any student excuses not to participate, two activity buses are available to transport students home from Homework Club. Since all MS bus routes are condensed into two, activity buses will drop off students relatively close to their normally assigned bus stops but may require students to walk a few blocks home. Students who walk to school can walk home at 4:00 PM.  Parent pick-up is also an option at 4:00 PM in front of the MS. Participation is not mandatory at Homework Club and no pre-registration is required.  Just show up, sign-in, and let the work begin!
