Grades 6 & 7
Dear WJPS Middle School Parents & Guardians,
WJPS is happy to announce our after-school tutoring program, TURBO, will be held on Saturdays, starting February 29, 2020. Turbo provides academic support to ensure success on NYS exams and ultimately, promotion to the next grade, fully prepared to engage in advanced work.
This program will run from February 29 through April 4th for 6th and 7th grades, plus two after-school classes on April 20 and 21. Classes will be taught by our teachers.
All Saturday classes will begin at 8 AM, ending at 11 AM. Students will spend half the time in ELA and half in Math. FREE breakfast will be served for all students. The two after-school ELA classes run from 2:20 to 4:20. The program requires a commitment by students to attend all sessions and attendance will be taken. Seats are limited, so please return the tear-off to Ms. Poulos by February 14, 2020.
Dear WJPS 8TH Grade Parents & Guardians,
We have had an unexpectedly positive response to our after-school tutoring and find that we need to reconfigure how we will offer test prep for 8th graders this year.
Only ELA will be available this Saturday, February 29, 2020, from 8 am to 11 am. Going forward Algebra is the only class offered on Saturdays. ELA and Living Environment test prep will be held after school according to the chart shown below.
Seats for ELA and Living Environment tutoring sessions are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please complete the attached tear-off and have your child return it to Ms. Xanthopoulos. Attendance will be taken at each session. Please do not sign your child up if they are unable to attend all sessions.
