Dear Parents and Students:

Beginning August 17, 2015 and running every Tuesday and Thursday if possible I will hold study hall in the classroom from 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. This is the only time I can allocate for study hall.

This will allow students to receive any one-on-one assistance they may need. In order for students to participate in this study hall, students must obtain a pass from one of the teachers the day before the study hall. This will allow them to leave the commons area and come to the classroom.

Students must come ready to work, on time, and not waste time. They must focus on what they have to achieve. This is a great time for students to ask questions - especially the ones they don't want to ask in class. This is not a time for socializing. If a student is asked to leave, because he or she does not use this time wisely he or she will not be allowed to return to the study hall. There is too little time for non-cooperation and disruptions and lack of effort.

I reserve the afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. for parent conferences and other meeting that are required by law.

Mr. Braman
