The Homework Assistance Program began in the 2004 –2005 school year and has successfully been helping students with homework organization and task completion since its inception. Students in grades 1–5 work collaboratively with La Jolla Elementary teachers and other students at their grade level at an approximate 10:1 ratio. This program offers: • La Jolla Elementary teachers at each grade level assisting students in a small group setting • The convenience of having students attend a program on site. • Someone different for the child to work with on his/her homework and a well-deserved break for mom and dad! Program specifics: Mondays and Thursdays (parents may sign up children for one or two days per week). Snacks: A snack and recess is provided from 2:45-3:00. Homework assistance is provided from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Please pick up your child promptly at 4:00 in front of the school office or let us know if your child should be dismissed to the YMCA. Students may not be picked up on Girard and must be picked up at the Marine Street entrance. There will be no meetings on Monday, November 14, & Thursday, Nov. 17, due to parent conference week minimum days.
