Power Hour Has Begun

Adam Stephens Middle School

Power Hour

The Goal of Power Hour: Power Hour is a mandatory, teacher-assigned after school program where students complete missing homework in a distraction-free, excuse-free, and supportive environment.  Students are also welcome to come on their own to get help with classwork.  Just come to the library after school to join us.

When: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 in the library or teacher classrooms.

How do parents know their child has been assigned: An automated phone message and email is sent out to parents the day before the student is assigned.  Students are also notified in person by the teacher in class that they will be staying after school for Power Hour.

How do students get home after Power Hour:  Students can walk, get a ride from parents, or ride the “Activity Bus” home at 4:30.  If they ride the Activity Bus home, they will be assigned to one of the SKEF program activities and also get a snack before the bus leaves at 4:30.

What should parents do if the student cannot attend?  Parents should call the school the day after being notified if their student cannot stay after school for Power Hour.  The school phone number is 503-399-3442.   Also, please tell us what day your student can stay and we will reschedule it.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

If you are interested in volunteering to help during Power Hour, please call or come to the school office.  You will need to fill out a volunteer form.  Please consider volunteering one day a week (or even more if you are able.)  We appreciate your help!

New Online Payment Portal

This fall, parents of Salem-Keizer students have a new, convenient option for paying student fees.

Through the Online Payment Portal, parents can use a credit card to pay athletic fees, library book fees, purchase ASB cards, make a donation, and take care of other payment transactions. The Online Payment portal processing fee is the same as the fee charged when making a credit card payment in the school office (2.75 percent).

The Online Payment Portal does not replace the food service payment system, EZSchoolPay.

Find a link to the Online Payment Portal on our school website, or visit https://skpay.salkeiz.k12.or.us.
