Extra time for studies with homework help

JAMESTOWN, Mo. — Three times a week, elementary students at Jamestown can take advantage of tools to make learning a little easier.

Homework help and power hour are after-school programs where small groups of students can make time to strengthen skills and get help.

Title I instructor Teresa Schoenthal leads the elementary program. She said in power hour on Tuesday, the students have time to practice beyond the school day.

"We work on strengthening math and reading skills for students in grades K-2," Schoenthal said.

To make things fun, she said, they play math games and read books.

During homework help Mondays and Wednesdays, students have a quiet place to work and study.

"It's a time for students to work on any homework they might be struggling with," Schoenthal said. "We're really able to focus on the skills the students need."

Both programs are available to all students who can stay from 2:45-3:45 p.m.

Homework help is also available for high school students.
