Help Your Student Improve in School

Some options to consider that may help your student improve his/her school performance.

TEACHER ASSISTANCE: The best help we have here at CWMS is teacher assistance. Most teachers are available after school, some before school and some at lunch. Every teacher has time available for students to drop by for help. Please contact your student’s teacher to see when they are free for additional help and have your student attend once or more each week. Five minutes with a teacher can save thirty minutes of individual struggle at home.

DROP IN HOMEWORK HOUR: Free after school program offered as a quiet place for students to work on homework from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday in the Charlotte Wood Media Center.

PEER TUTORING: Free after school program offered as a tutoring service by Charlotte Wood students from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Permission slips are available here for Tutors and Tutees and in the counseling office. Space is limited and subject to availability. Questions?  Contact Katie Shepherd.

WEEKLY E-MAIL CHECKS: All of our teachers e-mail addresses are in the student directory as well as available on School Loop. Teachers are happy to respond to parent e-mail inquiries about student progress.  Try creating a group e-mail with all of your student’s teachers and send a weekly inquiry.

SCHOOLLOOP: All in one web based communication program available by registering online through the CWMS website. When you register you will have the option to receive a daily email after 5:00 pm telling you all of your student’s upcoming homework assignments, newly posted grades, and recent news from the school or parent groups. It will also provide you with answers and explanations to your questions about tests, rubrics, due dates, and policies, thereby reducing the necessity of contacting the teacher directly.
