CCLU - After School Program 2023
Centro Cultural Latinos Unidos (CCLU) has been providing an after school/tutoring program at CCLU (209 Chestnut Street, Pottstown, PA) since Monday, September 11, 2023. Tutoring is available FREE to any family by enrolling students.
Tutoring is offered Monday through Thursday from 4:00 - 5:30. Our ‘typical’ schedule is:
4:00-4:15 - arrival of students : healthy snack provided (fruit, crackers, water) - check in with students as to how their day is / what they did at school
4:15 - as long as needed : assist in completion of homework / reading practice
Remaining time - 5:30 : - culture lessons, games to reinforce learning, play outside (weather permitting).
**THURSDAYS - 4:45 - 5:30 - at TRINITY REFORMED UCC - Computer Room**
CCLU has been helping between six (6) and fifteen students per session. Students range in grade from Kindergarten to seventh grade. The main focus of our program is to provide homework help for the students as well as providing reading practice and mini-lessons on the various cultures of all Hispanics. To date, we have celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15) and Día de Muertos (November 1 & 2).
Board Members, Diane Andrés (Mondays and Tuesdays) and Kim Sheeler (Wednesdays and Thursdays), have been leading the tutoring times. Diane and Kim have been supported by tutors from The Hill School, Owen J Roberts High School, Pottsgrove High School and Ursinus College.
Rebekah Sheeler, Environmental Educator from Nolde Forest in Reading, PA, has provided three different FREE programs to our students focusing on animals endemic to Pennsylvania.
