Live Homework Help from Pierce County Library
Click HERE for a resource for marijuana issues for school students.
Starting, Aug. 27, Pierce County Library System will offer free Live Homework Help. In real time professionally trained and experienced tutors will help students in 4th through 12th grades with math, science, English and social studies. The student and tutor communicate in a virtual classroom. Live Homework Help also uses two-way whiteboards, which are especially helpful for math and science problems. The tutors help guide the students to information, answers, and learning without simply giving answers. Through Live Homework Help, the tutor sees the grade level, subject, and student’s question, and the student sees the tutor’s first name and last initial. The tutor is not allowed to share personal or identifying information. With their Pierce County Library card, students may get free Live Homework Help every day, 3-10 p.m. @ www.piercecountylibrary.org/kids-teens.

I encourage you to visit www.knowhow2gowashington.org. This site has great resources like videos, quizzes and virtual tours for eighth- through 10th-graders and their parents. This non-profit organization will host school assemblies related to going to college as well.
Families encouraged to apply for free and reduced meals throughout the school year
Clover Park School District families can apply for the free and reduced meal program anytime throughout the school year. Families can also update existing applications in the event of job or income losses, which may make them eligible for additional assistance. In October 2008, the income eligibility requirement for Basic Food, formerly known as food stamps, increased to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. This increase enabled more families to qualify for free meals.
For information about Clover Park School District’s free and reduced meal program qualifications, contact the student nutrition department at 583-5490. For information about the Basic Food program, contact the Lakewood Community Service office of the Department of Health and Social Services at 476-6800.
