Work-It-Wednesdays are back for the 2021-2022 school year! After a full

year of not going to school on Wednesdays, students are finally able to return to the Achievement Center for extra studying on some late-arrival Wednesday mornings. The Achievement Center is run by Mrs. Conway and Mrs. Prentice and is located on the third floor of the CAC in the Media Center.

Work-It-Wednesdays allow students to seek out help with studying in

whatever subject they feel they need it. Peer tutors are available to help with a multitude of subjects, and some of the more difficult classes have even organized study groups! Students can work at their own pace in a variety of ways. Junior Hannah McIntosh said that going to Work-It-Wednesday has helped her find new ways to study her material. Some things she does during Work-it-Wednesdays are rewrite notes and make quizlets in study groups.

Sophomore Riley Hourigan said, “(Work-It-Wednesday) gives me an opportunity to get extra help

on specific topics I don’t understand. I have attended multiple study groups and it truly helps me so much.” Riley also works as a tutor on Work-It-Wednesdays in math classes. She started tutoring because she appreciated the help she got when she needed it and wanted to use her skills to help others. Students can volunteer to be peer tutors to their classmates or underclasswomen for classes that they feel confident in, meaning more opportunities for one-on-one help for students.

Mrs. Conway and Mrs. Prentice are also available to help students! Mrs. Conway is the go-to for any students needing help in english or social studies, while Mrs. Prentice can always help out with math and science. Whether it’s proofreading an essay, studying for a history test, or finishing your math homework, there is also someone to help you out in the Achievement Center and on Work It Wednesdays. If you are interested in forming a study group or even just attending Work-it-Wednesdays, keep an eye out for emails from Mrs. Conway about future dates!
