Tutor Commitment Recognition
On July 18, 2018, the Board of Directors recognized the following active Augustine tutors for gifting students with an impressive number of lessons:
May 2018 Tutor Appreciation Brunch
Denise and Scott Ruby hosted the annual gathering to celebrate ALP Upstate tutors.
December 2017 Tutor Talk & Holiday Brunch
Susan Cruz hosted a delightful brunch where tutors were reminded of the P-E-R strategy for reading comprehension and long-time tutor and board member Pat Riordan was honored for her service to ALP Upstate.
Usborne & More Book Drive
From September 10-12, 2017, generous supporters donated so that Augustine tutors could give more than 400 books to their students during the 2016-2017 school year.
September Tutor Talk
Over 35 ALP Upstate tutors gathered on September 7 & 9 to review the updated assessment packet. All of the assessments have been updated except the Roe-Burns — some as simple as new typeset and others with new words, sentences and scoring. Meeting handouts and the revised packet are available on the tutor portal.
Thanks to a Thrivent Financial Action Team award, every ALP tutor was able to select a book from Deborah Watkin's Read, Yes I Can series to give to their student.
Teresa Hoover announced the upcoming book drive with Usborne & More matching donations by 50%. ALP set a goal of 400 books in order to provide every student with a book permonth from October– May for their personal library.
