LEROY — Pine River Area Elementary students will continue to have tutoring opportunities after school from YMCA After-School Tutoring Program.
Members of the Pine River Area Schools Board of Education unanimously voted to keep the program during its meeting on Oct. 13 after Cadillac Area YMCA Executive Director Dan Smith and program director Mike Kelso presented the re-implementation proposal. The tutoring program assists students who are struggling in math by giving them fun ways to learn different strategies. It also provides a healthy snack and time for physical activity. To check student progress and see where other improvements are needed, the children are tested every two weeks.
