District Notes

The District 90 Winter Speaker Series begins Tuesday, Jan. 30, starting at 6:30 p.m., at Amelia Carriel Jr. High School, located at 451 N. Seven Hills Road in O’Fallon. The first session covers two topics:

▪ Cyber Security: What every parent needs to know about texting, internet, communication and cyber bullying.

▪ Ticket to Success, which is a coordinated literacy and leadership program through which students engage with successful and dynamic leaders representing civic, corporate and government professions.

Carriel

The after school Homework Help Program at Carriel continues to be offered from 3 to 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from from September to April.

Group sizes are meant to be kept beneath a dozen students, and a certified CJHS teacher will run the sessions. Teachers may help with any homework, act as a study partner for tests or help with questions about a lesson.

Teachers are not available to monitor students after 4 p.m., so administration advises rides to be available promptly at 4 p.m. Students must come prepared to all sessions and be ready to work for the entire time. Attendance will be taken each session. Students should bring a book with them in the event they have free time before the end of the session. Any student who does not use this time wisely to work on their homework, or who does not try their best, will be dropped from the program, without refund of fees, so that our numbers can remain as low as possible.

The family portion of the cost of Homework Help will be $30. This fee will cover the cost of your student for the entire program.

For inquiries about the program or about a child’s attendance, feel free to contact Angela Piening, the Homework Help Lead and Social Studies teacher at apiening@of90.net or call 618-622-2932, ext. 1032.
