I wanted to take a minute in this newsletter to introduce myself. My name is Amy Decker, and I will be taking over for Joe at Accelerate Northfield this year. I am from Red Wing, MN and graduated from Stanford University this June. I moved to Northfield in early August to start my position at Accelerate Northfield. I’m very excited to work with such a wonderful program! Please don’t hesitate to contact me over this next year with any questions, concerns or to just say hello. I’d love to hear from you. Now on to business!
The end of the summer is fast approaching and we are excited to be getting ready for a new school year. But before we start the new school year, I wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all your service and dedication last year. 2012-2013 was a fabulous year for Accelerate Northfield — we had over 170 community tutors work with over 1,000 students. I hope we can continue this great effort in the upcoming year!
Please take a minute this month to sign up to tutor again this year at acceleratenorthfield.org. Click on “Yes, I want to help!” to start the sign up process. Don’t forget to complete the background check so you can start tutoring at the beginning of the school year in September! I look forward to working with you and hope to see you soon.
We will be at the Riverwalk in Bridge Square this Saturday (the 17th) from 9am to 1pm, so please come see us if you have any questions or would just like to chat. I’d love to see you there!
Thank you again for your amazing work last year,
Accelerate Northfield VISTA
