Announcements and Important Events
We are excited to announce that there are a few new options available to help the many Holt High School students who are facing difficulties with remote learning right now. We know this is tough, but we are happy to let you know that there are fellow students interested in helping you!!
Several Holt HS Students have recently volunteered to be part of the Peer Assistance Leaders (PALs) program, which will be offering various opportunities for academic support starting next week (Monday, December 7). In order to learn more about the programs and keep up with important announcements, please join the PALs Tutoring 2020 Google Classroom. Students can then sign up there to participate in any of the programs below - as a tutor OR to get support. In order to receive the code, please email a request to Mrs. Sadler at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will then email you the Google Classroom code.
Through PALs, these three programs will be launching next week. Please feel free to share with other Holt High School students so they can take advantage of any or all of these opportunities!!
- One-on-One Tutoring. FREE online peer tutors!! If you fill out the google form below, you can sign up to have an individual Holt HS student tutor who can help you with your school work. (https://forms.gle/TE8gmWGekS9vQPWr6) Ms. Lown (Holt HS Counselor and PALs Advisor) will get in touch with you next week to match you up with a tutor for the class(es) you need help in.
- Motivation Monday. Motivation Mondays are group Google Meets - through PALs Google Classroom, that will take place every Monday, 3:00-4:00 p.m. starting this Monday, December 7. The purpose of Motivation Mondays will be to have current Holt HS students help their fellow students who are struggling to stay motivated, organized or engaged in school right now. They will provide tips to help you be a more successful student. You do not need to sign up in advance for this. Just click on the Google Meet in the PALs Google classroom on Mondays at 3:00.
- Tutoring Tuesday. On Tuesdays 3:00-4:00, a drop-in tutoring program will be offered through the PALs Google Classroom. There will be two students available to help students in each core area. Each core subject will have its own Google meet. You do not need to sign up in advance for this. You will join this through the PALs Google classroom on Tuesdays at 3:00. (More information to come!)
Finally, we have created some Flipgrid videos containing tips from Holt HS students to help their fellow students. Check out our awesome students who voluntarily posted these:
