Falling Creek Middle School is able to provide free remediation and tutoring services in an afterschool program called P.A.W.S. The program is run and staffed by certified teachers and offers students an opportunity to get homework assistance, additional support in English and math, and the opportunity to participate in some special projects and enrichment activities. This program is designed to give support to students who want to bring up their grades and who want to actively participate in learning.
The program runs Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:05 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Each day your child will get a snack at the beginning of the program and dinner at the end. Transportation is provided for all students in the program through Chesterfield County School buses. Students who enroll in the program are expected to attend every day. Students are expected to actively participate in their efforts to improve their grades and their understanding of academic concepts as well as follow all school rules and to respect their teachers and peers. Students who do not demonstrate the desire to improve and to work cooperatively will be asked leave the program so that another student can be offered the opportunity to learn.
The P.A.W.S. program follows the school calendar and will only be held when school is in session and will not be held on early release days. Our program will begin in October
Space is limited to the first one-hundred students who return their form and are accepted into the program. Students who are not the first to respond will be put on a waiting list.
You will receive notification from the program director if your child is selected to participate and when their first day is.
