Apringville Junior High School is now holding Morning Enrichment from 7:20 to 7:50 for students who have two or more tardies in a class. One day at morning enrichment will make up for one tardy. While students are at enrichment they get to work on homework or do something quietly. They can’t talk to anyone, though.
Mr. Ken Van Ausdal, principal of SJHS, said, "Kids need to be on time to their classes because it’s a life skill to be on time, and if you’re late often then it’ll create bad habits. They also miss information, and it disturbs the class.”
Mrs. Distefano said, "Plan wisely, according to your schedule, when to go to your locker or to visit with friends. If you need extra time for something, ask to use a hall pass.”
Last year, Enrichment was during lunch, but according to Mr. Van Ausdal, it was not successful and hard to get students and their lunches there. Now it is easier, most kids are coming, and over all changing enrichment to the morning was a successful change.
