How would you like to earn a little extra credit?

We will now offer you the opportunity to come early (8 AM) and stay late (3:30 PM) to earn and learn a little more! During our “Coffee Chats” at 8 AM, we will go over resources that are available for your class.  In the afternoon at “Happy 1/2 Hour”, we will discuss any issues you may be having and problem solve. The additional time is voluntary, but eligible teachers can earn extra money and additional in-service points.
