2017-2018 Tutors with leaders Peggie Thomas, Kathy Willman, & Barbara Antonacci seated in front

After weeks of May gloom, the sun came out and it was a beautiful day for the volunteer tutor “thank you” luncheon on May 31.  Thirty-one TLC tutors and 2 supervising teachers met at my house for lunch, conversation, and a program debriefing to close out the 19th year of providing one-on-one tutoring to El Morro students who had been recommended for the program by their teachers.  In total, 20 students in grades 2-5 received help from TLC volunteers with reading, comprehension, math, and study skills.  We welcomed 8 new tutors this year to round out the cadre of 35 volunteer tutors in the program.  With sadness, we said farewell to Barbara Antonacci, who served as a tutor and co-program administrator since joining TLC in 2006.  Gratefully, Kathy Willman expanded her role to become a co-program administrator as well as tutor and will continue in this role next year.  And we were pleased to have Nicole Stewart join Debbie Finnerty as one of the two TLC supervising teachers.  As we close out the year, we wish to thank all for devoting their time and talents to help a child succeed in school through The Learning Club (TCL).
