George White Elementary Tutoring

 

We are starting a Homework Club for 2nd,3rd, 4th and 5th graders again and we are looking for High School students to support our Homework Club teacher. The Homework Club will be on Mondays and Tuesdays from 2:15-3:00.  We are looking for 4 students or so who need to complete service hours. We would like to at least have 2 students each day.  We would like them to be upper grade (11th or 12th ) and honor students that can help.  Mostly we will be dealing with mathematics and Language Arts.  Please feel free to give them my name and information to contact me.

 

Thank you for your help,

An open letter from Gabi Guizar-Boulgarides, Hidden Hills Elementary . . .

 

I am the Bilingual Community Services Liaison for Hidden Hills Elementary school in Laguna Niguel.  I am reaching out to you again this year in hopes of finding high school students who are interested in tutoring students at Hidden Hills Elementary starting the last week of September.   We have been successful in the past with high school students volunteering their time.  This requires a commitment until May.

 

Our school hours are:  7:45 – 2:05 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.  On Tuesday, the hours are 7:45 – 12:50. 

 

Please have students submit their availability directly to me, and I will proceed from there in coordinating with our teachers.  We are always in need of tutors for Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:15 to tutor a group of kids in the area of math, reading, and/or comprehension. 

 

I appreciate your assistance in publicizing this opportunity on your website, meetings, bulletin boards, clubs, etc.

 

Thank you so much for your assistance.  Have a great year!

Applications turned in after September 15, 2017 will not be accepted.

Criterion: 

Academic Achievement:  Maintain a minimum of 2.5 GPA with no D or F grades on first semester report card and no D’s or F’s through the spring 12-week progress report (March 31, 2017).

No more than five absences (for any reason other than school events/business) for the academic school year. For the purpose of this award, college visits are not approved absences. In the event of serious illness, the candidate can provide a doctor’s note and the five absence rule will be reviewed by the Activities Director.

School Service:  15 hours of school service. There are now only eight pre-approved school service organizations that you may work for in order to receive school credit. They are PTSA, Dolphin Force, Grad Nite, Paths, the Library and any CUSD approved tutoring or instructional program, along with the donation of home-made baked goods to school events and donation of blood to school-sponsored blood drives. No credit will be given for service hours with teachers, teams, clubs or for individual tutoring. No hour credit will be given for any items donated that were not home-made. Credit will ONLY be earned for Saturday recycling events. (No after school or lunchtime recycling.) Students must turn in service hour logs with each event as a separate entry and verify hours as indicated on logs. No combining of events. Late turn in or incomplete hour logs or applications result in no credit given.

1.  Donation of Baked Goods:

A maximum of three (3) total hours will be given throughout the school year for donated items. All baked goods donated must be home-made. No credit will be given for store bought food, beverages, etc.

2.   Blood Donations:

Meeting: There is an informational meeting scheduled on Monday, August 28, at 8am in the Porthole Theatre to explain all rules regarding Dolphin Pride. Students may still participate in the program if they do not attend the meeting; however, they are responsible for the understanding of all aspects of this program. Failure to follow the rules of the program will result in disqualification from the award. This award recognizes student responsibility. As the student, you alone are held responsible.
