January Newsletter

Welcome to Accelerate Northfield’s January ’14 Newsletter!

** A Note from Accelerate Northfield
————————————————————
Hello Tutors,

Welcome to 2014! I hope you each had a wonderful holiday and are as excited to be back as I am. 🙂 We had an awesome finish to 2013, with over 20,000 volunteer hours!! We are currently filling 56% of teacher requests. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you have put in already this school year. I hope we can continue this effort in 2014!

The start of a new semester is a great time to take another look at the tutoring opportunities on our website. Many teachers will add new requests at this time of year, or adjust the ones they already put on the website. That means it’s a wonderful time for you to tell ALL your friends about volunteering for Accelerate! 😉 January is a great time for new tutors to get started, so please help us spread the word!

Best Wishes,
Amy

** The Numbers

1610
is the number of students volunteers have worked with so far this year. It’s truly amazing that we can reach and help so many students, and it’s all thanks to you.

** Current Events

iPads
You may have noticed that the iPads are no longer in place in the front offices. We are continuing to have technical difficulties and have temporarily removed the iPads from the front offices. We hope to replace them once the problem has been solved. For now, please use the binders to sign in and out of the building.
