Homework Club Update
Homework Club Needs You!
The new after school Homework Club we started this year is a big hit with our kids! It's a great way for them to get their homework all done in a quiet and supportive environment.
We still need volunteers! Please help us keep this going by signing up for a day when you can volunteer to oversee HW Club here:
Keep in mind that this can be a one time thing or recurring. We welcome volunteers with varying levels of commitment whether it be every Tuesday, once a month or once every other month. Thornhill Parents, let's pull together to keep this going!
Morning Sunshine is being offered free of charge Tues/Wed/Thurs from 8:05am-8:15am (Kinders) and 8:20am - 8:35am (grades 1-5). To enroll, please contact Danielle Sugden of Montclair Dance Athletes at (510) 338-3040.
Homework Club (Tue/Thur)
Homework Club is now up and running! On Tuesday and Thursdays, tell your child to invite a buddy to knock out their homework in the Computer Room (Room 12). Click Here to sign up for Homework Club so we know to expect your child.
