More and more kids are not understanding math. Maybe because they don’t want to give the effort to learn or they may not get the concept. Math teachers, Mr. Ferrin, Mr. Morgan, andMrs .Coxen, offer tutoring during pack time at the school. “Tutors are a good idea because some students will ask another student for help more readily then the teacher,” Mrs. Fong told the Lobo Howl. 99% of students asked by the Lobo Howl said they would like help with math. “Helping kids is fun, I love that I can help them learn,” Matt Moleff told the Lobo Howl. Many tutors help all grades with their math.

Our principal, Mr. Fleming, sat down with the Lobo Howl and discussed a few things he’d like students to think about.  Here are some principles he’d like students to consider:

Have you noticed kids being disruptive and wasting time in the halls? Being disruptive includes running, yelling, gathering in groups in the middle of the hall, jumping on each other’s backs and other things of that nature.

Wasting time is also an issue, don't mess around during the five minute breaks between classes, because if you do mess around there is a chance you could be late.
