Extra Help: Wednesdays after school

Welcome, students!

I hope you had a marvelous summer and have returned to school with energy and determination.

Your academic efforts during these next few years will set the stage for college and career success. This is a time to challenge yourself and define your goals. I hope that building and refining your English language skillset is at the top of your list of goals.

Students sometimes think that school learning has little practical application. Think again. The communication skills you master in English class will help guide your successes not only in school, but in career and your personal life as well. We can all improve our communication skills with guidance, effort, and practice.
