Last Week of Tutoring

The last day of after school tutoring is Thursday, April 28. A huge thank you to all the teachers who signed up to tutor, and to all the students who stayed to learn! With the Florida Standards Assessment  just around the corner, do not forget to tap into the free tutorials and practice on https://www.khanacademy.org.
