VU is now well underway for the 2012-13 school year. It’s really great to see familiar faces return after the summer break–and I mean my fellow volunteers as well as the students! We have also welcomed some new scholars so far this year and look forward to adding more as we go along.
A quick peek inside the reading room (AKA computer lab) provides evidence of the VU elves who worked diligently over the summer to reorganize and replenish the books. A new system makes all the available reading material so much more accessible. Students can find fiction, nonfiction, and magazines to meet their interests with ease. The new games have been a hit too and provide great incentive to finish homework and read so that there’s time to play! The secret is that even the play is educational.
