G.I.F.T. Homework Assistance Program
Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to argue with your child about getting their homework done every night? What about having some extra family time each night? Do we have a G.I.F.T. for YOU! What does gift stand for? G.I.F.T. is “Get It Finished Today.” Roosevelt, Mellette, and McKinley Elementary Schools and the Watertown Intermediate School will once again be offering the homework program, which is sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of Watertown through the support of the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant.
THIS PROGRAM IS FREE WITH A SNACK PROVIDED EACH DAY!
G.I.F.T. will be available to 2nd thru 6th-grade students and will run from 3:20 – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
The first 30 minutes of the program will focus on homework help and reading. The end of the hour students will get to do fun enrichment activities related to math or reading comprehension. It’s a fun way to have your child Get It Finished Today, plus have some fun while doing so!
Any student who chooses to attend the G.I.F.T. program must have a signed permission form filled out by their parent/legal guardian.
Permission forms are available through the Coordinator at the site location.
If a teacher refers a student, the student will be given the permission form upon arriving to the G.I.F.T. room, which should be signed and returned the next day.
