At Memorial Middle School, we offer an afterschool program called Academic Help Zone. This is a time for students to complete homework, study for tests, receive extra academic assistance, and use the computers for class-related assignments. Memorial teachers will be available to assist students as they work. Academic Help Zone is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:15 to 3:15 in the Media Center. Students may choose the days they wish to attend. It is their responsibility to let parents know the particular days they will stay after school for Academic Help Zone. On these days, parents need to arrange for student pick up by 3:15. We must have an Academic Help Zone Permission Slip on file for all students who wish to participate. These are also available in the main office. The starting date for Academic Help Zone is Tuesday, September 23rd.
Congratulations to Mr. Hume! He was one of ten HCSD employees to receive an “Excellence in Education” award. So deserving! His vision inspires his students to produce work that they thought was beyond their ability. Be sure to check out the student art show this spring.
