The Martin Center, lead by Sister Marge Maher, works regularly with reading groups, in addition to working with respective classroom teachers to meet the needs of students in both remedial and enrichment areas.
Study Buddies is a time set aside from the noon hour (11:40 - 12:20). It is held in the school library and it is supervised by a teacher/responsible adult. In Study Buddies, students are given the opportunity to complete late or missing assignments while they eat their lunch. Students in Grades 2-8 are required to stay the entire noon hour (11:40 - 12:20). Students will eat from 12:00 - 12:20 in Study Buddies. Students in Grades 1 do not participate in study buddies.
Each teacher will monitor the student's progress. If Study Buddies does not improve the student's work study skills, a conference will be held to determine strategies to further help the student in this area.
