One more week of school - I'm sure your kids are chomping at the bit. Where I tutor, the kids were full of excitement for the field days to come.
Seattle Schools starts its round of graduations tonight. Best wishes to all SPS grads of 2012. I hope your future is so bright, you have to wear shades (those of you of a certain age will get that song reference). And congrats to all the supportive and hard-working parents.
A promise to sit down today and write up a detailed report about Advanced Learning (and several other stories that have been brewing are coming this weekend).
Lastly, I tutor with a group called 826. This group was started in 2002 by author Dave Eggers in San Francisco. It has spread across the country with after-school tutoring, field trips, in-school projects/help and more. Each center has a store (the original one was a pirate store) and the one in Seattle is the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. (on Greenwood at 85th). It's a fun place. We tutor any and all kids from grades 1-12.
Next week (this is a bit embarrassing to disclose), but I am participating next week in a
dance-athon for the group to raise funds for our work. I would love to have more sponsors. Anything is appreciated, $1 an hour = $5 or $5 an hour = $25.
What's on your mind?
