Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Phelp­sAide Phelps Helps, which is the of­fi­cial name of the af­ter school tutoring pro­gram for high school stu­dents of­fered at 10 Phelps Street, in Stanstead, has lots of room for more stu­dents from Alexan­der Galt High School to join! Es­pe­cially with re­port cards around the cor­ner, co­or­di­na­tor Katie Lowry hopes that more stu­dents will sign up soon.

Phelps Aide Phelps Helps is hold­ing an Open House on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 5th, from 5:30 to 6:00 pm., just af­ter the reg­u­lar tutoring ses­sion from 4:30 to 5:30. Par­ents and stu­dents are en­cour­aged to come in and meet the tutoring team as well as dis­cuss up­com­ing re­port cards.

Par­ents of the stu­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Sun­ny­side pro­gram can also come by if they wish!

The suc­cess­ful Phelps Aide Phelps Helps pro­gram is now in its 4th year. “We have many ex­cel­lent stu- dent par­tic­i­pants and vol­un­teers but, as our num­bers are grow­ing, so are our needs. We are al­ways seek­ing more tu­tors for both the ele­men­tary and high school pro­grams. Also, we of­fer home­work help and exam prepa­ra­tion so all stu­dents from all lev­els at Alexan­der Galt should drop in and see how Phelps Aide Phelps Helps can help them meet their aca­demic goals,” com­mented Katie Lowry, the co­or­di­na­tor of the pro­gram.

This free pro­gram is pro­vided for Stanstead area stu­dents at­tend­ing either Alexan­der Galt High School or the East­ern Town­ships Learn­ing Cen­tre. It runs on Tues­days and Thurs­days, from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, and healthy snacks are pro­vided. Reg­u­lar school buses bring the stu­dents to the pro­gram’s lo­ca­tion on Phelps Street.
