Students at Thurgood Marshall Academy dove into their first week of classes on Monday, filling the hallways with ruckus, reverie and a few back-to-school jitters. But in the dark corners of everyone’s minds, one question burned: what’s happening at the programs office?
The Other 17 Hours blog aims to answer that question and many more throughout the course of the school year. With contributions from students, faculty and staff, The Other 17 Hours will pick up where it left off last year, covering everything TMA-related, both on and off the campus.
The next few weeks are packed with the start of after-school programs.
For 11th graders, law firm tutoring will begin with a kickoff meeting from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6. Juniors must turn in their signed permission slips by Friday, September 2.
Students already feeling the academic squeeze can take advantage of Homework Help, which begins in the library at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6. For those who need more individual help, the Writing Center and one-on-one tutoring will begin soon.
Finally, students itching to join after-school activities such as the newspaper, student government, SASS, Green Club and the Anti-Defamation League should plan to attend the fall Club Fair from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 15. Representatives from every club will be present to sign up students interested in participating during the fall term.
