Thank You For Your Service, Tutors

Dear ACCELERATE NORTHFIELD tutors,
There is no question the past couple months have been unbelievably difficult. We all have faced personal, educational and professional challenges that few of us ever would imagine occurring.

As you already know, Gov. Tim Walz ordered school buildings closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. This action, while appropriate and potentially life-saving, took many people out of the education equation. Among them are you, the dedicated volunteer math and reading tutors of ACCELERATE NORTHFIELD.
As ACCELERATE coordinator, I am grateful for the meaningful impact you made on Northfield students this school year. Your time and efforts improved our students both academically and socially
It’s unclear when the district will be permitted to conduct classes in school buildings again. When that happens, though, I am certain there will be a need for volunteer tutors like you to help our students. We would be thrilled to have you return, if you are able.
Again, thank you for your service, your kindness and your consideration this school year. You performed amazing feats with Northfield students, and the Northfield Public Schools thank you!
Have a wonderful spring and summer!
Michael Garlitz
Coordinator, ACCELERATE NORTHFIELD
