The end of this school year's LaAmistad Afterschool is upon us. We will start the new tutoring session the week after Labor Day. That means that we will see you here on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Make sure that you fill out our Volunteer Questionnaire (attached to the same email that gave you this link – we also have paper copies on the desk where you sign in each session) and let us know which grade you are most interested in tutoring.
Make sure to tell us what supplies you need!
Also, let Patricia or me know what kinds of things you will need for tutoring next fall. New notebooks and journals will be automatically supplied, but please let us know if you will need pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, markers, etc. We need to know before next Friday, May 12, what supplies to ask for.
Maybe one day... one of ours?
If you would like to attend the awards ceremony that we are holding in the 3-4-5 grade classroom, please make sure to come next Monday, May 8, at 3:00 p.m. If it's not your day for tutoring, we don't expect you to stay, but you are welcome to come and see the children receive their awards.
Two hard-working children will bring home bikes!
We have certificates and bicycles for the two students with the most improved math scores, Ronaldo Perez, improvement of 85 percentage points, and Dasha Ortiz, improvement of 60 percentage points! Congratulations to them both!
We have a certificate and book for Christopher Salgado as all-round Outstanding Student. "Christopher exemplifies what La Amistad seeks to accomplish. Christopher is bright, motivated, kind, and cooperative. He is recognized by all tutors as being our best Ambassador and the other students seem to be well aware of his gifts. Chris attends regularly, has always participated enthusiastically in the tutoring, and has earned recognition as a 'Leader' almost every day. Christopher’s academic skills are already good, but he is an outstanding learner and is energized by solving problems and experimenting with new ideas". - (Direct quote from nominator Hugh Stoddard, Volunteer)
We have a certificate and book for Kimberly Lopez for the special Leadership Award. "Kimberly has worked very hard this year, has made excellent grades, and shown that she can be a leader and [is] willing to help others". (Direct quote from nominator Kay Reagan, Volunteer)
