The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board will be offering their Grade 3 and 4 students an opportunity to refine and master their basic numeracy skills, while participating in an evidence-based numeracy program called Numeracy PALS, whihc stands for Peer Assisted Learning Strategies in Math.
This tutoring initiative is being offered as a voluntary after school program at no cost to parents. The children will receive additional mathematics support, by a trained tutor, under the supervision of one of our staff members. Tutors will be delivering the Numeracy PALS program, which focuses on the basic computational skills we know are essential to students’ mathematical success.
The tutoring sessions will take place two afternoons a week for 45 minutes in most elementary schools. The sessions will begin immediately after school and will be facilitated by trained post-secondary tutors
