** A Note from Accelerate Northfield

Hello Tutors,

Within the past few months, Accelerate Northfield has been featured by local media. In November, Accelerate co-coordinator Michael was interviewed by Jeff Johnson on the KYMN-AM morning show. Click here ( to listen to that interview.

Then last week, Accelerate was featured in a news story in the Northfield News written by Molly Larsen. Click here ( to read the story.

We are very excited about this publicity because the more people who learn about Accelerate, the more help we will have to close the achievement gap.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Amy and Michael
