May, 2019 Newsletter
In the next few weeks, another year of one-on-one tutoring sessions will come to an end. ATC's staff and Board of Directors will begin receiving results of student progress and start organizing our year-end reports. We are always anxious to learn of the great work our tutors and students have been accomplishing all year!
We’ve been hearing some wonderful stories about our tutors we want to share:

·        The members of an area book club that includes one of our tutors made donations to ATC in memory of Karen Schecter, a beloved member of the group who recently passed away. She was an avid reader and ATC is honored to receive these contributions. 

·        Celia Wexler, a tutor at Charles Barrett Elementary School, recently published her latest book, Catholic Women Confront Their Church ! ATC extends its congratulations to Celia, a journalist and author who also finds time to volunteer.  For more information, go to: http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/news/2019/apr/23/struggle-continues/
If you happen to be in the Cameron Station neighborhood on Saturday, May 4 , stop by between 3 and 4 p.m. and say hello!  ATC will help celebrate the opening of Alexandria’s newest Free Library, a tiny place where anyone may leave or take a book. We will be across the street from the Cameron Station Gazebo in the Brenman Park Drive median. Come help ATC promote reading in Alexandria’s West End! 
Springtime always means Spring2Action, and ATC is grateful for those of you who contributed and encouraged friends and family to do the same. Checks are still coming in from this city-wide online fundraiser; we anticipate final receipts to be more than $28,000. Thank you, ATC community, for putting us on solid financial footing for next year.
Thank you also to our tutors for your time and dedication again this year to help students become better readers. Let’s finish strong!   Please check with your coordinator to learn when the ATC program ends at your school.

Finally, congratulations to Executive Director Lisa Jacobs who has accepted the Board of Directors’ offer to renew her contract for another year.
