Only the educated are free. ― Epictetus

One of our best math students!

If you have any recommendations for the student awards, please e-mail me or Patricia immediately: jvera@laamistadinc.org or pchandonia@laamistadinc.org

We will be deciding on the winners this weekend.

Party time!

Our end-of-year party will take place between 3:30 and 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 11, 2017. THERE WILL BE NO TUTORING THAT DAY! However, we hope you can come to the party, as there will be plenty of food and drink! The children will be playing BINGO between approximately 3:30 and 4:15, and eating and visiting between approximately 4:15 and 5:00 p.m.

Many of our students' parents will be bringing home-cooked food, dishes from their own countries and cuisines, so be prepared to try a little of everything! We will have tables set up according to grades, so you can sit at the same table as your students and their parents. You are welcome to join in and play with them during BINGO and of course for the eats after.


Remember that some of your students will not be returning next year. Both David Cortes and Kimberly Lopez will be graduating to middle school, so be sure and congratulate them before they leave!

Middle schools are bigger!

Reports cards just went out!

Please remind your students to ask their parents to bring in their report cards.

Have the students or their parents hand them to me, Judith.

I guess the modern report card has changed since this one!



Meaning: to understand

Can be used instead of: understand, grasp

Study Skill:

Choosing groups wisely

How to incorporate the study skill: Do not choose to work on a project with your friends just because they are your friends. You should pick people that you know will do their equal part in the group and who have strengths that complement yours.



Education is the vaccine for violence. – Edward James Olmos
