Power Hour

Power Hour is scheduled either side of secondary students’ lunch times and is designed to increase equity and access to extracurricular and academic opportunities and support within the scheduled school day, to enhance social-emotional development, to strengthen relationships — among students and between teachers and students, and to help students develop self-direction, time management, and responsibility.
