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.
Tutor Commitment Recognition
On August 3, 2017, the Board of Directors recognized the following active Augustine tutors for gifting students with an impressive number of lessons:
Summer Training Classes
Two training classes were taught in the summer of 2017, and a total of 18 trainees added to the ALP Upstate tutor family! Pictured with their mentor coaches are new tutors Maxine Brown-Sartor, Patty Crenshaw, Christina Davis, LeAnn Duncan, Deborah Fletcher, Georgia Fowler, Royce Franklin, Tamara Gray , Pat Hogue, Sharon Lynch, Debbie Markert, Alisha Martin, Veronica Martin, Jennifer Nockels, Marcia Radakovich, Robin Robb, Cheryl Rosemond, and Leigh Whitaker.
Tutors enjoyed fellowship, food, and phonics phones at the 2016 ALP Tutor Family Holiday Gathering.
Books & Bagels Tutor Talk
The October 2016 Tutor Talk was a "Shopping Spree" for tutors and they selected new, decodable books for their students. Supporters of the Usborne & More book drive gave so generously that tutors will be able to give a student a book a month to build their personal library! We are thankful for Teresa Hoover's leadership in taking the book drive from dream to reality.
