Thanks to the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC), the school library and computer room for Tuba City Boarding School (TCBS) are now open on Sundays from 3-6 p.m.
Tutors will be available in the library to assist students with homework assignments. Students can also use the library for studying (quiet place), research from text material and for leisure reading. The library is located on the first floor of TC-11.
The computer room is available for completing homework and research assignments. The computer room is located on the second floor of TC-11.
Parents are urged to encourage their children to utilize these services to improve grades and receive help when they don't understand a subject. Parents are also welcome to assist their children in the library or computer room with homework assignments. TCBS encourages parent involvement.
The 21st CCLC also offers after-school tutoring and enrichment programs daily from 3:30-5 p.m. Snacks are provided for students during this time and buses run at 5 p.m. to transport students home.
Student involvement in the 21st CCLC after-school programs have proven that students who regularly participate in the program show greater academic gains than non-participants. Students have also attained better academic marks and high standardized test scores and advanced levels of proficiency and are also more likely to stay in school and graduate. Students who take the initiative to receive help academically receive better grades.
It has also been found that students in after-school programs are less likely to engage in risky behavior. Troubled youth who are encouraged by parents, teachers, counselors, friends, etc. to participate in after school programs receive positive guidance and academic assistance, raising their level of self-esteem to want to do better and improve their self-concept.
Finally, the 21st CCLC is seeking parents to serve on the Parent Partner Advisory Board (PPAB) and the Site Council Committee (SCC). Parents will have a voice implementing the program and provide suggestions for improvement.
For more information regarding these two committees, parents can contact Georgia Greeley at (928) 283-2330, ext. 241.
