A+ Summer Tutors Give Back to Their District
The summer of 2012 was another successful year for A+ tutors and the students who they assisted. Lindbergh High School students assisted elementary age children in the Summer Enrichment and Lindbergh Early Childhood Education programs.
“These stellar A+ tutors set the example for all of our A+ tutors and also for the young children who one day may be A+ tutors years down the road,” said Dr. Jim Beatty, summer A+ coordinator.
The following A+ tutors received recognition from their supervisors for showing leadership, excellent attendance, patience and caring:
Lindbergh Summer Enrichment: Grant Lubsch, Derek Debosek, Ben Rupp, and Nick O’Hanlon
Lindbergh ECE: Stephanie Lake, Tori Hancock, Sarah Meine and Grant Meine
The A+ Program allows students who meet the requirements to attend any state community college, vocational school or technical school free of cost. Students must complete 50 hours of tutoring, in addition to meeting attendance, citizenship and academic requirements.
