Important Update about April Tutoring Scheduling

Welcome to Accelerate Northfield’s April 2014 Newsletter!

** A Note from Accelerate Northfield
Hello Tutors,

April is an important month in the schools because it is when 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders take the MCAs (state standardized tests). If you work with 3rd, 4th or 5th grade students, it’s extremely important that you check in with your teacher regarding your tutoring schedule this month! Due to testing, your tutoring schedule may change. MCAs start this week, so if you haven’t already talked to your teacher about your tutoring schedule, please be sure to contact them A.S.A.P.

Best Wishes,

Amy Decker

** Announcements

** Good News From You!
“Students get very excited when they see their group leader arrive. They feel special and important to be able to work with a college student in a small group. Having A.N. volunteers helps me make sure that all students get some personalized attention. With a class of 29, it would be impossible for me to meet with as many guided learning groups as A.N. volunteers do.”
-Northfield Teacher

** Current Events
This past week has been National Volunteer Appreciation Week. I hope you all got a chance to pat yourselves on the back for your amazing work so far this year! Also, I hope you have a chance to look at the signs Accelerate Northfield put up next to the iPads. Thanks to the sign in system, we were able to compile the number of volunteer hours and visits to each elementary school. When you have a chance, please take a look to see how much you and your fellow volunteers have accomplished.

** What’s Happening Next?

Apr 14-May 2 – MCA testing, grades 3-5. Each week is a different subject (reading, math or science).

May 26 – Memorial Day. No School.
