With all schools in Michigan closed, our after-school tutoring in Pontiac is on break.
But our support continues by providing home study packets for the ESL students at Owen Elementary (see photo of the recent drive-thru distribution to parents, respecting the safe-distance guidelines).
Soon we hope to be posting video book-readings on YouTube and 1-on-1 tutor sessions via Google Meet.
‘Shout Out’ to our Pontiac Scholars!
To stay connected we have given a ‘shout out’ on much we miss our young scholars!

We are Education Advocates in Lansing… and in the classrooms in Pontiac….
We’re proud that CCB members are providing valuable service in the Pontiac Schools. Tuesday, October 1, we began our after school “Homework Club” at Owen Elementary School. We meet with the children 4:15-5:30 PM every Tuesday and Thursday. If you’d like to join this team, contact Lynn Wilsher.
Additionally, a growing team is helping out during the day at Whitman School. Cynthia Martin helps in a Kindergarten class two days a week, and Pat Parker is organizing a team tutoring 3rd graders on Monday afternoons, 1-3:00 PM. This is a great opportunity to help children who aren’t reading up to grade level. Sit with the student, listen and help with reading, vocabulary and comprehension. There’s a car pool from CCB. If you’d like to participate, contact Pat Parker.
More volunteers are always welcome.
