Extra study session
“Feed the Brain” is a new event devised at Warrensburg High School with a purpose of boosting academics, and dozens of students are likely to be attending, school officials said this week.
The study session, set for 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. June 10, is intended to help students prepare for final exams or catch up on course work, school principal Doug Duell said. The exams begin the next day, June 11.
Feed the Brain will be a wonderful opportunity for our kids to have extra time with teachers to prepare for finals,” he said, “and we’re grateful to the school faculty for organizing it.”
Duell said several Warrensburg teachers concocted the idea, and the initiative was supported by the local teacher’s union.
Students are to be divided by study subject and a large number of teachers will likely be mentoring the pupils in review sessions, Duell said.
To participate, students must sign up with their respective Social Studies teacher by Thursday June 6.
For details, call instructor Bonni Roth at 623-2861 extension 230.
Duell predicted May 28 that the event would be popular with students.
“Pizza is a big draw,” he said.
