First, a big thank you to all our volunteer tutors who are now in full swing at Fair Oaks Elementary, McKinley Middle School and Kennedy Middle School.
Since the Fall, we've grown from 12 to 18 volunteers and also started tutoring at Kennedy Middle School. We welcome and extend our thanks to the following new volunteers:
Amy Shimer (McKinley), Susan McLaughlin (Kennedy), Heidi Richards (Kennedy), Kim Zamboldi (Kennedy), Yvonne Molina (Kennedy), and Namita Paul (Kennedy).
At Kennedy, most of our volunteers work in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, Long Term English Learners literacy classes where we are already having an impact. According to Kennedy's principal, Sabrina Adler.....
"The volunteers in here have been making a tremendous difference and I am actually seeing the kids smile more. They are excited to read with the adults one-on-one."
