Homework Central is an after-school tutoring program serving third, fourth and fifth graders at three sites in North Central San Mateo. Teachers from Sunnybrae, Horrall, and San Mateo Park Elementary School refer students; parents then enroll their children in the program, and students attend their homework center four days a week.
Our congregation is host to those students from San Mateo Park Elementary School. Our Site Coordinator, Jill Wagner, is the daily constant welcoming the students and assigning the rotating staff of volunteer tutors. Tutors work with students on their homework, strengthening math, writing and reading skills.
In addition, families attend evening classes that provide information on such topics of concern such as gang prevention, middle school transition, and positive discipline.
