PEER TUTORING: Hello Wildcats! DO YOU NEED A PEER TUTOR? Best practice suggests that, when you need some assistance in a class, you should go to the source first: your teacher.  However, if you have been meeting with your teacher and find you still struggle, The St. Ignatius Peer Tutoring Program may be a great option for you. Please fill out the Peer Tutor Request Form, and someone from the peer tutoring program (Coach G, Mr.Mackey, or Ms.Miller) will be in contact with you as soon as the first week of October.

Staffed every period, every formation period (except Thursdays), and before and after school, the PCC (located next to the English office in MB 415A) has excellent juniors and seniors to help you with your writing needs. It doesn't have to be just for English, either. Any subject works. Stop by anytime! Ask your English teacher for more details if you'd like.

BERNARD MOVERS: Want to get involved with service at Saint Ignatius?  The St. Bernard Movers helps people move from one apartment to another, or from transitional housing to independent living.  We work on Mondays after school until about 5:30, and transportation is provided to and from school.  It's truly rewarding meeting people who might be in their first safe living situation.  Join us!  Questions, see Mr. McManamon in College Counseling.
