It’s hard to believe we’ve been back at homework assistance for three weeks! The kids settled back in immediately, and it’s been so much fun to see them fully embrace the program so readily. Volunteers also returned ready to support in whatever way is needed. We have some fourth graders who will be studying Virginia history so we’ll all be brushing up on that too. Projects have already started: a recent one was about lady bugs and I’m sure many others will follow. Last night two volunteers helped finish up some students’ summer projects–do you remember making looped potholders? They seemed harder than they did when we were young; it took two volunteers!
Happily, our volunteer capacity has been such that we’ve started calling people on the waiting list. To ensure that we can meet the needs of all the students who attend, we’ll do it slowly but we will grow to whatever extent we can. Thanks to all who support us. If you don’t currently volunteer, please contact us and see what you’re missing.
