Academic Supports

  • SMART Lunch


    SMART Lunch is offered for the first 20 minutes of lunch as an opportunity for students to ask for clarification about topics from class or receive assistance from their teacher. It may also be used as a time to make up a test or quiz. Students may volunteer to utilize this support or they may be assigned for academic recovery.

    SMART Lunch Activities by Day

    • Monday—English/Social Studies
    • Tuesday—Math 
    • Wednesday—Computer Science or World Languages
    • Thursday—Science/Engineering Design

     

    After-School Assistance

    After-school tutoring will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Cherry building room 162 (Ms. Lupher's room) beginning August 13.
     
    Students may stay after school on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays to receive assistance and tutoring or work in a quiet environment. This is a great time to complete make-up work, including tests and/or quizzes. Likewise, students may use this time for project group work. Wendy Robinson is the after school coordinator and her area of expertise is math; she is also willing to help students navigate through other subjects. Students are welcome to stay for 30 minutes or an hour or until 4:30PM. If you are concerned about a ride, a late bus comes between 4:35-4:45PM Tue Wed and Thur. Contact Wendy Robinson (wrobinson@wcpss.net or warobin4@ncsu.edu) for more information.
     

    Wednesdays at Cengage

    Cengage tutoring is available for students who have submitted the parent permission form (found on our home page and linked below).  The program begins August 28, 2019.
     
    Cengage employees voluntarily tutor our students on Wednesday afternoon at their place of business, which is located on NCSU’s Centennial campus. This program is extremely popular with students. Because students are transported to Cengage on the school bus, a parental permission form is required as well as weekly sign up. After tutoring, students may walk to Hunt Library (with parental permission) or ride the bus back to the Cherry building. Students may be picked up from the school at 4:15 p.m. If you are concerned about a ride, a late bus comes between 4:35-4:45PM Tue Wed and Thur. Contact Wendy Robinson (wrobinson@wcpss.net or warobin4@ncsu.edu) for more information.
