For the 2020-2021 school year, Homework Club took place VIRTUALLY due to COVID19. As for the 2021-2022 school year, we are unsure at this time whether Homework Club will take place virtually, or in-person.

Involves assisting a child in grade 3-8 with their homework, playing educational games, and developing organizational skills.
