Homework Help During GROWL
Next GROWL - November 7
We are so excited to add "Homework Help" sessions to our GROWL program on Wednesdays.  Does your 9th grader need help understanding their homework? Perhaps they need someone to read their essay and provide some feedback. Or maybe they are struggling with a concept and need someone to explain it to them again. We have a solution.

Cambridge National Honors Society students are volunteering their time to help 9th graders with their homework during study hall or intramural sports on GROWL days.  After attendance is taken in study hall or intramural sports, students may sign out of their class to report to room 1.116. Our National Honors Society students will be there to help with math, science, history, English, and Spanish.  

This is a great opportunity for 9th graders to get help with their homework. When they are finished getting help, they return to their study hall or sports.
