Learning is not a spectator sport. – Anonymous

Our volunteers are the best!

Welcome back, Volunteers!

We're glad to see you again after the spring break we had last week. The children are especially glad to see you!

End of Year Party!

Patricia and I have made plans for the end of year party on Thursday, May 11, in the Great Hall on the first floor of the church. We are offering volunteer hours to the parents who still need to put in some or all of their ten hours so that they can help us with the party, or COOK for it! We have asked them to only bring home cooked food for us to try, preferably finger food from their country (without the hot stuff - don't worry, it will be on the side). We are also offering them volunteer hours to set up the party, clean up afterwards, and attend the party with the kids.

Parents at the pen pal party

We would be delighted if you could come that day, although there will not be any tutoring. However, the children will be playing bingo from 3:30 to 4:15 and visiting and eating from 4:15 to 5:00, when we will say goodbye until next school year. You can come at any time and participate in any phase of the party, including the food! The kids will definitely want to say goodbye to you!

  • When: Saturday, April 29, 2017
  • Time: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
See you there!

monday, april 17, we will have tutoring as usual!

Apparently someone put on the calendar that was handed out at the beginning of the year that there would be no tutoring, but that is incorrect. The office will be closed that day, but tutoring will go on as usual.

See you on Monday!

Study Skill:

Break big assignments into smaller parts.

How to incorporate the study skill:

You can use good time management by not procrastinating on large projects. Work on small parts of a large assignment every day until it is finished.

Isn't it wonderful when kids are excited about receiving books?



Practice makes perfect!

Thank you for being a volunteer with LaAmistad! We love you and so do our kids!
