Learning Leaders

Learning Leaders offers free teaching sessions for parents of elementary school children. The program is primarily intended for volunteers, who would afterwards come and help teachers at their respective schools. Even if you do not have time for volunteering, I strongly urge you to attend this program, because it provides valuable information for any parents, not just the ones who volunteer.

There are four 2.5-hour sessions held at the downtown office of Learning Leaders (2 minute walk from Fulton street subway station):
- introduction / working with children;
- helping with reading;
- helping with writing;
- helping with math.

At the end you receive a book with lots of great teaching ideas and games. Those who complete the application form and obtain 2 reference letters available for downloading from Learning Leaders website, also receive a badge that grants them access to P.S.217 during school hours and allows to volunteer if they choose to do so.

The next 4-classes session for elementary school parents is in January @10 am - 12:30 pm on:
Tuesday, Jan. 19 & Thursday, Jan.21
Tuesday, Jan. 26 & Thursday, Jan. 28

You can sign up for these classes with Ms. Lauraine (parent coordinator) at the school main office.
