Our tutoring program is up and running - and we LOVE working with the students at Our Lady Help of Christians (OLHC) school! Every
Thursday morning for the past four weeks 5-6 of our members have met at 8:25am in the St. Teresa's parking lot to carpool to OLHC and we're usually back by 10:45. The more members who come, the more children we can help, so we're hoping you'll join us.
OLHC is a small catholic school in East Orange for Students in Pre-K through 8th grade. The school is in a safe neighborhood and is well run by Sister Pat, who has been the principal there for 37 years. Our role is to work with students that need extra help with basic skills in reading, writing and math. No previous teaching experience required!
The children are well behaved and receptive of our help. In fact, they light up when they see us coming! Thank you to our volunteers who jumped in right from the start: Terry Andrews, Patty Crowl, Barbara Flelming, Maureen Harkins, Penny Kardis, Elisa Mezzacappa, Lois Melka, Christine Murray, Sheila Schlageter, and Lori White. If you are interested in getting involved, please click on the link below or talk to some of our volunteers who have already tutored at OLHC. In the words of Lori White, "I know we've all found it to be a rewarding experience and want to continue working with these great kids!"
