Read. Graduate. Succeed
Read Today is a KSL sponsored, AmeriCorps led program designed to help students with their reading fluency. Using the USEO’s Star program, student’s who are identified as needing extra support are given the opportunity to read one-on-one with trained volunteers. Oquirrh Hills partners with Latinos in Action at Kearns Junior High to provide mentors for our students, and give junior high students the training and experience of being mentors. For more information, contact Annie Camp, Read Today Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before School Tutoring Lab
Students are welcome to join us in either of our computer labs before school from 8:00 AM – 8:40 AM to receive additional supports in math and reading. Students may practice their math fluency using our Reflex Math program, reading skills using the Success Maker program or language skills with our Imagine Learning program. This is open to any student.
CUB Attendance Program
Attendance matters! Students who are having a difficult time getting to school, or arriving on time are invited to join the CUB Attendance Program. The earn incentives each Monday for checking in and out each day and are mentored throughout the week during lunch and recess to encourage attendance. Students are considered chronically absent 10% or more of total school days. (That’s about 2 days per month!) Please help us by making sure you student gets to school on time and ready to learn.
Mentoring for Success
Students who are identified as needed additional opportunities to practice their math concepts are given the opportunity to receive one-on-one math mentoring from trained volunteers from the community. This is done during intervention times twice a week. Students play fun interactive math games while gaining valuable math practice.
Extended Day Tutoring
Oquirrh Hills received a grant provided by the 21st Century Community Learning center to allow our teachers to provide afterschool tutoring to students in need of additional math and language arts support. Students are given the opportunity to practice concepts in new ways to better grasp their understanding of the materials. The extended day tutoring program also partners with the Boys & Girls Club to provide a free meal afterschool and the opportunity for students to join the Boys & Girls Club program. Transportation is available for students participating in either of these programs.
