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
