Homework Club

HOMEWORK CLUB 2019 - 2020  Register here

Homework Club (HWC) provides a structured and safe environment for students to complete their homework in both target language and English with the help of qualified instructors.  HWC is not one on one tutoring, it's for students capable of working independently. Our staff takes time and makes an effort to ensure that students understand all assignments they complete.

We encourage students to bring books in their target language to read after they have completed their homework. Math and cursive handwriting sheets will be provided to students who finish their homework and do not have a book to read.

We work with local teachers who have experience teaching foreign languages, and with Franklin Amity Interns who know what students are learning in class. Students are to meet interns/supervisor by the benches near the cafeteria. If you need to contact us text HWC Supervisor Agata Gravante at 818-445-8106 or Lango at 818-281-6288.

Camp for Incoming 1 - 4 graders: the goal for students entering 1st - 4rd grade is to improve target language speaking, reading comprehension and writing by reinforcing the language skills learned during the school year. Campers are immersed in the target language by doing fun group projects and activities to become more familiar with the language and increase their vocabulary and fluency.
Daily reading sessions, story telling, reader's theater and review of high frequency words will improve student's reading and listening comprehension abilities
Campers will participate in traditional indoor and outdoor summer camp activities like cooking, games, theater, and much more to make learning an exciting experience while practicing their target language in a fun and relaxed environment.

READING PROGRAM : This program is temporarily suspended

The Lango Reading Program is an after school educational program where qualified tutors work with students in small groups. This program is offered for students in Kinder - 5 grades. The program will focus on the target language reading skills of the students by providing them with proven techniques to acquire comprehension skills and strategies to raise their reading comprehension level, in a pleasant, well-supervised environment. 

The teacher will individually asses your child, and together they will work on:

  • Phonics instruction and games
  • Independent reading practice
  • Comprehension building discussions
  • Reading enrichment activities
  • Vocabulary building

Students will be assessed to determine their level. Beginning readers start by mastering the initial sounds. First the vowels, the consonants, then they will learn to blend vowels with consonants, to form syllables. From syllables they will move to read phrases, paragraphs, and entire texts. Students who already know how to read will work on building comprehension skills to become a fluent and stronger reader.

Maximum class size is 8 students. This allows teacher to provide individual attention and at the same time promotes group discussions and activities. Students will be grouped by grade, each class is in a separate classroom.

Our program materials meet the needs of a wide range of students. The teacher provides individualized support and guidance based on your child's skill level and needs.



Parents please remind your child of the days they have to be in HWC. Parents are expected to pickup their children on time. Please make arrangements if you cannot be on time and inform us of any changes.
