The Little Red Rocket Program is committed to ensuring our students perform at the highest level.  The Homework and Tutoring session will be the first thing that students complete before going on to all other activities.  This is intended so that students will be able to complete their homework before going home each day.  Students will be grouped with students from the same grade, and will be assisted by an 8th Grade Honor Student as well as a professional teacher.  There will be 4 students to each Rocket Tutor.  On days when students do not have homework, the Rocket Tutors will review a grade-appropriate reading, writing, or math exercise in order to ensure students’ skills remain sharp.  All Fridays will be devoted to Science.
