By now the kids are in school with their backpacks packed, supplies in hand and, hopefully eager to learn and excel! School has been back in session for a few weeks now which hopefully, (if you are a parent) gives you some time to relax with a little peace and quiet. While they still may be settling in from all the summer fun they had, there are resources out there that will help them achieve the pinnacle of success inside of the classroom!
Homework Hotline has been one of the most enduring resources for your child to use. This comes in handy if you are busy at work and would like for your child to complete their homework before supper time if they
may need a little assistance. Chances are your child has seen one of the many different colored posters for Homework Hotline hung up inside his or her classroom. This statewide program is in its 27th year and counting and is designed for students in grades 4th through 12th! The program also presents daily thematic segments on topics such as health, animals, book reviews, history, and government issues. The best way to describe how the free Homework Hotline resource works is for example, if your child is struggling with their math homework and you are not home nor too sure of what the right way is to solve the problem then your student dials the number at (702) 799-5111. Someone will then answer and ask your child a few basic questions such as name, the grade they are in, and most importantly the subject they may need help with. After getting this information, the Homework Hotline helper will then best explain how to solve the problem step by step with the best approach to reach the correct answer! This service is available Monday through Thursday beginning after school from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Once again, the Homework Hotline telephone number to call is (702) 799-5111. It is FREE!
