Retired teachers, K-State students and community members work together to provide individual homework assistance and skills improvement for elementary and secondary students. Educational games as well as software are used to provide improvement in math, reading and thinking skills. This is provided free of charge. As students complete their work, they progress toward special places marked on a map of Kansas and earn small prizes. Offered 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at Douglass Community Center Annex. To enroll or for more information, please call Marianne Cullers at 785-539-6736 or email.
Summer programs are also organized by retired teachers, KSU students, and other community members to provide summer learning in a fun way to help with skills improvement and to avoid summer learning loss. These programs are free of charge and limited to 24 students in each program. Both the math and the reading programs run in July.
