Focus

Do you need help with homework?  Away from classes and need time to catch up with assignments?  Are you having trouble understanding classroom concepts?  Focus Block is a half hour block that is designed to allow students to choose where their time is best suited  to promote individual student success.  Students have a wide array of options to choose from in this time period.  Some of the unique features of Focus Block are the following:

  • Teacher help desk sessions
  • Teacher / Student curricular help
  • Study Block
  • Homework completion
  • Team meetings
  • Graduation events
  • Peer tutoring / collaboration
  • Involvement in clubs

If a student falls below 50% in a subject, focus block attendance is essential and should be utilized to ensure the student is receiving the extra teacher support they need.

Focus block occurs daily and is provided by every teacher at St. Joe’s from 8:40am to 9:10am.
