Silvestri's Homework Club & Library Helpline
Often when tweens and teens get around to starting their homework, distractions from television, computers, friends, and family make studying a challenge and help is not available. Silvestri's Homework Club was created to negate some of these issues.
The Homework Club meets for 70 minutes two days a week and is staffed by a teacher and a teaching assistant. Mrs. Chavies, Silvestri's learning strategist stated, "We try to re-enforce concepts and the instruction from class."

Homework Club Hours
Homework Club meets in Silvestri's library from 2:10 - 3:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. A parent stated, "One reason our homework club is successful is that the teachers maintain it like a regular classroom." She added, "They expect the students to be working and quiet."
It is imperative that students maintain an academic attitude and focus during this time. IF students act inappropriately they will be asked to leave the Club. Safekey is available to those students that want a non-academic setting after school.
Bus students that attend Homework Club may ride the late bus.
NOTE: You MUST already be a bus rider to be able to ride the late bus.
