I’ll begin by saying, “I Miss You!” I miss you – I miss your stories, I miss your smiles, and I know you miss your students.
I thank you for the kind words forwarded in emails, the cards sent, the long distance smiles, the virtual hugs, and the supportive phone calls.
We truly are a village and in this together (though we are apart).
I know we all have questions about how volunteering will look during the 2020/21 school year. I hope you will keep an open mind about staying on the team -even with a wait and see attitude. I think the first wave of sessions will be virtual volunteering to protect all parties and follow state guidelines. So the plan is to learn about our options for online mentoring and then to train as many volunteers as possible. The bottom line is that the students will still need our support and it is simply a matter of figuring out the logistics for moving forward.
Save the date: July 31st! We will have multiple zoom class meetings to share updates for this coming school year.
Class links will be forwarded on July 29th. Available class times: 9:15 am, 11:00 am and 1:30 pm. Join us for program updates, and a brief refresher.
