In response to the need of many of our students to have some structured time to do homework before they leave school to go to an after-school activity (e.g., music lessons, sports, etc.), we offer an after-school study hall (Homework Club). Peabody faculty members supervise Monday through Thursday from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. each week that school is in session (unless parents are notified otherwise), beginning with the second week of school. The teachers will provide a quiet, supervised environment in which children can work, and they are also available to provide assistance with homework to any child who needs it. A small fee is charged when students attend and parents are billed monthly.
Students who attend Homework Club work on school assignments. At the conclusion of Homework Club, students are picked up or escorted to the After School Program. Students who complete their assignments in Homework Club prior to 4:15 p.m. proceed to the After School Program (if registered) and remain in its supervision until a parent or authorized adult arrives. Students who wish to attend the After School Program after Homework Club must be enrolled in the After School Program. Parents may sign up their child for Homework Club on any given day on a sign-up sheet located in the front hallway.
