Parent helpers are critical to the success of the program.
They need to be onsite for the times for which they have signed up.
The program is a collaborative effort between parents and teachers.
Being present in the building will allow parents to see the program in action and check their students' progress.
Parents will have easy access to the grade book in order to check for missing assignments; teachers will be available if parents need to consult them.
Sign-up sheets will be available as early as the Parent/Instructor/Student Meeting on Sunday, August 25, 2013, at 2 P.M.
Each day has morning slots (7:30-11:00) and afternoon slots (11:00-2:30).
Parents will make photocopies, correct papers, monitor student whereabouts, enforce cell phone and electronic device policy, monitor computer use, and assist the instructors as needed.
When families pay their September tuition (due August 25), they will send in 9 checks dated the 1st of each month and in the amount of $75.
When families complete their last half-day of volunteering for the month, they will redeem the check for that month. If families miss any of their volunteer slots for a given month, their $75 checks will be forfeited.
If families prefer not to participate in the Parent Helper Program, $75 will be added to their monthly tuition.
