Adam Stephens Middle School
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.
