Peer Tutor Program

 Last year, we had over 54 fifth grade students who gave up their recess to 'tutor' a kindergarten child!! The program started in October and ran through June. Can you imagine the committment that is required from these students?  And they LOVE doing it! Relationships flourish, self-esteem grows, knowledge abounds and everyone gains!! Ask your 5th grader if he or she is planning to be a tutor this year!

New Go Zen Program Coming to Northwest!
