Study Connection will start in late August for the coming 2015-2016 school year. At this time we are seeking regular weekly tutors and substitute tutors to work with students from Levan Scott Academy.  Study Connection is a priority for FWCS and buses will continue to be used to transport students to tutoring sites, including Trinity English.  Because of elementary school time schedule changes, Study Connection will begin a half hour earlier, at 3:25 p.m. on Mondays.  Working with these young students is a very rewarding experience.  If you are interested in volunteering to serve in this way as we work together to change the world, please contact any one of the following individuals:
     > Pastor Kathleen Haller at KHaller@TrinityEnglish.org or 260.426.3424

Janet Altemeyer at JAltmeyer@TrinityEnglish.org or 260.426.3424
