We’re excited to begin our 4th year tutoring as we partner with Copeland Elementary School assisting grades K-3. During the 2016-2017 school year we were able to help eleven students providing one-on-one tutoring for them. The bus drops them off after school around 3:15. They have a snack before beginning their work. We work with each child on the subject their teacher has recommended—spelling, reading or math, for 45 minutes. We close with group story time before their ride picks them up at 4:30. Our goal has been to help these children gain self-confidence while developing a caring relationship with them. The tutors meet for prayer prior to the day’s tutoring session to lift up each child, the school faculty, and other concerns of which we are aware. We were fortunate to have received a grant from the Yadkin Valley District which has been a great benefit to provide needed supplies for our Kids Zone. We welcome volunteers!
