Would you like to volunteer as a Homework Helper?
Does your child need Homework Help?
Whether your elementary school student is stumped by math, struggling with reading or simply needs someone new to help them with their spelling words, the library can help! With funding provided by the North Canton Rotary Club and The Rotary Foundation, as well as the help of several partner organizations and community volunteers, the North Canton Public Library will continue its Homework Help program in February and March.
TUESDAYS from 4-6 p.m. (February and March)
What it IS:
Help with school assignments related to spelling, reading and math for children in grades K-5
An extra set of ears to listen to a child practice reading
Someone new to help a child study their spelling words
Guided educational fun using technology (iPads and other tablets) to practice basic concepts
Enthusiastic volunteers, ages 13 and older, who are generously giving their time to offer this community service
One hour per student (4-5 p.m. or 5-6 p.m.) each Tuesday in February and March with the exception of March 22 (spring break week)
Incentives for children who join us at least four times
Pizza courtesy of Papa John’s North Canton and cookies for all children who attend
Welcome bags full of learning tools for first time attendees
A new educational initiative in addition to our large variety of educational items available for circulation and our wonderful online learning resources
Coffee and pastries for parents/caregivers (we need you to remain in the library, but preferably not in the homework center)
Free! (thanks to The Rotary Foundation)
What it IS NOT:
Official tutoring or intervention (we can practice areas of need, but are not trained intervention specialists)
Babysitting (parents must remain inside the library)
