Morning tutoring will be offered in the library for K-12 students Mon - Fri from 7:30 - 8:00 am. Mr. Hartman will be working with older students and Mr. Cadeau with younger students.

This should be a nice option for some older students who have sports or jobs after school so attending tutoring at that time isn't possible.
