With the success of W.I.N. time throughout the district, we will be changing Study Club to only Wednesday nights. This change starts second semester (January 25).

If your student needs extra help with schoolwork, has math or science questions, we can help! Study Club is staffed by licensed teachers who are excited to help. We meet after school on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:00pm (phone ext. 125) in the Cardinal Media Center.

Permission slips are required for grades 4-8 and can be obtained from any teacher or from our school website here. Slips may be returned to the school office or brought with to Study Club.
