Supply List for 2016-2017 School Year
Thank you Community Partners!
SUNY Albany: Students from SUNY enlisted in a Community Service course complete 105 hours of volunteer time per semester at our school. During this time they follow the classroom schedule, work with students in small groups, listen to students read, and assist the students/teacher as needed.
Capital District Foster Grandparents: These are senior citizens from our community who come into the schools 15-40 hours per week. These volunteers can give extra support to students one on one, or in a small group setting, read with students, or assist in the classroom as needed.
OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program: OASIS tutors are adults 55 and older who are trained to be tutors to students. They promote motivation, success and enjoyment of reading, writing and oral communication; build self esteem and confidence; and work to strengthen ties between generations. These tutors work one on one with students who are identified by their teacher to be a good fit for the program and come in for an hour each week. The tutors also create their own lesson plans for their time with the student.
There are also various community members (parents, grandparents, family members of our students) who volunteer their time to come into the classrooms and assist our students and teachers, as needed.
