Tutoring Opportunities

Are you looking for extra help in algebra or geometry? Or are you interested in helping fellow students with those subjects? Achievement Connections is a partnership program that offers free tutoring in algebra and geometry to high school students in the Madison area.
 
Current students in those courses can sign up to receive free tutoring, where they will be matched with a tutor to meet at least twice a week for 40 minutes.
And students who have completed algebra or geometry can get involved as peer tutors. It’s a great way to help out other students while also earning service learning hours!
 
Interested in learning more? Email Ms. Pa Kou, the tutor coordinator for Middleton, at pher@mcpasd.k12.wi.us
 

 
Picking Up Materials
If you have materials to pick up for your classes, please come to door #4 (the Student Center door) between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm on any day of the week. 
 
When you pull up to the door, let the staff member know exactly which class you need materials for and what you are picking up.  Make sure you check-in with your teachers before coming to school, just to confirm that the materials are ready and waiting in the Student Center.  

If picking up materials is tough for you, let your teacher know and they will work with the Deans to set up a delivery of materials for you!
