First, you get help with your homework. If your stuck on a math problem and don't know what to do. Your Beyond the Bell teachers will save the day. They will help with the problem until you get it and understand it.
Second, you learn new skills. You get to take two enrichment classes- one for Wednesday and one for Thursday. These classes teach you new skills and are fun to take. Volunteers come from places around Harrisonburg to come and teach us.
Finally, they help you with your subjects. Lets say you are failing math. The Beyond the Bell teachers will help you until you get an A+. Maybe you got a D on your Science test. They will help you study for your next test so that you won't get another D.
My favorite school event is Pride Time. You get help with your homework, learn new skills and get help with your subjects. I hope Beyond the Bell will be a program at Thomas Harrison Middle School for a long time.
