March Updates from Accelerate Northfield

Welcome to Accelerate Northfield’s March 2014 Newsletter!

** A Note from Accelerate Northfield
Hello Tutors,

I hope you have enjoyed the glimpses of spring weather we have been getting. Here’s to hoping spring arrives sooner rather than later!! 🙂

Accelerate has been working hard this past month to establish partnerships with other local organizations. We are now listed on the 5th Bridge website and we are looking forward to working with them in the future. We also have been working with the Public Library to help spread awareness of the achievement gap and the need for tutors. We have already had several people sign up to volunteer due to these partnerships, and we’re very excited to continue working with the Library and 5th Bridge in the future!

Even though the weather may not be as spring-like as I might wish, I hope you all enjoy Spring Break next week!

Best Wishes,

Amy Decker

** Good News From You!
Recently, a teacher told me that: Accelerate Northfield has created many positive opportunities and relationships for our students and for myself. The students look forward to when our Accelerate Northfield volunteers can work with them. The extra one-on-one and small group opportunities have allowed our students to not only grow academically but socially as well. I’ve seen their confidence grow immensely. When the volunteers arrive, our students are eager to greet them and excited to work! It’s been nothing but a positive experience for everyone involved.
