It was our last day of the 2013-2014 session of ROOTS, our Saturday School academic enhancement program, so we went out with a bang. All the ROOTS group – students, instructors, volunteers – bussed downtown to check out the Ripley’s Aquarium.
The Sharks were a highlight!
(So was the food court.)
On behalf of Crystal (our amazing Instructor), Howard (the program Manager who helped make this all happen), Edwin (another educator who joined us late in the game, but was so awesome he’ll be sticking around next year), Khadione (our amazing volunteer), I (Sam, the program admin. and blogger) would like to say it was an absolute joy to get to spend my Saturdays with all these amazing youth. Watching them learn to thrive in an educational environment, and learn to seize the reins of their own educational journey, was a truly amazing thing.
