Homework Hot Spot

On Wednesday, October 11, we will kick off Murphy’s Homework Hot Spot. We created this area because we want students to have a teacher supervised area where they have teacher assistance, peer assistance (provided by a combination of McMillen and Murphy NJHS students), or simply a quiet place to finish up homework before their day begins.

 

The Homework Hot Spot (HHS) is available every Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 7:50 – 8:20 in D-111. Because we want this area to be structured and organized, we will be limiting the number of peer tutors – as well as the number of students coming in for assistance. We anticipate the ability to house about 10 tutors and 30 students for the HHS. We want our parents to know that this service is about to come on line. The HHS is not a replacement for teacher-led, subject-specific tutorials, but it is another way for students to ensure their success. Please encourage your child to utilize this additional layer of academic support whenever they’re feeling stressed or unsure.
