We have solicited neighboring schools to join us in this journey. Therefore, each teacher does not have to make a nomination, but are limited to one per teacher. We have many facets in place to help and support the mission. FAELA is hosting a Community Yard Sale that will start this Sat., May 13 - June 10. 2017 to support the mission (weather permitting). This is an effort to offset costs for the operation of the Summer Camp, to compensate staff for their time, cover overhead expenses and provide special Friday events for the students: pizza Friday, bouncies, clowns, ...
We are reaching out to our neighboring schools to solicit your students for tutorial services and remediation at our camp sessions to help them retain the information acquired this year and prep them for their next milestone - advancing to their next grade level.
The ideal candidates are those that you are sure will pass, but barely. We would like to capture them to better prepare them for next year and avoid the struggles that may confront them if not addressed. tekeducate2017.weebly.com/dbks.
