The After School Tutoring Program at Bridgewater Park Apartments has completed its tenth year. "The Homework Club" offers a tutoring and homework help program on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:45 pm to 4:45 pm for students in grades 3-12. "Camp B," a reading program for grades 1 and 2 is offered on Wednesday from 3:45 pm- 5:00 pm. The students in the program live in Bridgewater Park Apartments and attend Clarkston Community Schools.
Pine Knob Elementary and Sashabaw Middle School helps identify the students from Bridgewater and supports the program throughout the year with materials and ideas that help make the students' efforts productive. Bridgewater Park Apartments donates a three-bedroom apartment with electricity and water. We go to the community to obtain our volunteer tutors. Our dedicated tutors deliver over 1500 hours of tutoring to our students.
During the summer, in conjunction with the reading aides and teachers at Pine Knob Elementary, a three week language arts and math program was offered to the students from Pine Knob. This program is three days a week for two hours each day. A breakfast and lunch is served.
This After School Tutoring program would not exist without the generous contributions of Bridgewater Park Apartments, local churches and organizations, and the dedicated tutors that teach and mentor our students during the year. This is a program that succeeds because of the Clarkston community’s involvement with the youth in the area.
