Cox Mill has a 68 minute period called TEAL Time (Tutoring, Extracurricular, Academics, and Lunch). During this time period, students have the choice to see teachers on scheduled tutoring days to receive academic support, collaborate with other students on projects and assignments, engage in quiet study time, hold club meetings, and eat lunch. Likewise, teachers can also assign tutoring. This is an excellent opportunity for students to improve their academic success. The English department will offer tutoring during TEAL Time on the following days:
Mondays – TEAL Block B – 12:16-12:50
Thursdays – TEAL Block A – 11:37-12:11
*TEAL time will start
