MATH PALS


Dear Parents,
The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, is offering our Grade 3 and 4 students an opportunity to refine and master their basic numeracy skills, while participating in an evidence-based numeracy program called Numeracy PALS (Peer Assisted Learning Strategies in Math).
This tutoring initiative is being offered as a voluntary after school program at no cost to parents.  Your child will receive additional mathematics support, by a trained tutor, under the supervision of one of our staff members.  Tutors will be delivering the Numeracy PALS program, which focuses on the basic computational skills we know are essential to students' mathematical success.  This is not intended to be a "homework club".
The tutoring sessions will take place two afternoons a week for 45 minutes.  They will be offered Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.  The sessions will begin immediately after school in the library, and will be conducted by our post-secondary trained tutors and supervised by one of our own staff members.  
The WINTER session is six weeks in length, with a total of 12 lessons.  The Winter session is scheduled from January 7– February 14, 2014.  
Please take a moment to review the attached flyer for more information about the program.  Once again, we are very excited to offer this free enrichment opportunity for your child.  
Please express your interest by completing the bottom portion of this letter, and return it to school no later than Monday, December 16, 2013.  
Sincerely,

Principal

Yes, I am interested in having my child participate in the WINTER Numeracy PALS tutoring opportunity.  I understand that my child's attendance at the lessons is an integral part of the program.  I understand that I am responsible for my child's own transportation at the end of each lesson.
