Be The First To Know

Volunteers needed @ Senn High School


Dear Neighbors,

We are launching a new volunteer tutoring program at Senn High School that I’m very excited to tell you about. This is a great opportunity to get to know Senn students, teachers and administrators on a personal level. We are fortunate to have such a beautiful school right in our neighborhood, so let’s get inside and show our support.

There are several goals to the new program. The most important goal is to encourage academic excellence and offer one-on-one support to those students who may be struggling in certain subject areas. Another equally important goal is to get our community more involved inside the school.

You do NOT need to be an expert in any of these subjects. I understand most of us have not looked at a World History or Algebra textbook in years! What we’re aiming for is an adult tutor to encourage the student academically, answer basic questions about homework, but also to build self esteem and confidence.

If you are interested, please email me directly at elizabethjshank@gmail.com. I will forward you the CPS Volunteer Application. I will need to know what day/s of the week and what subject/s you are interested in tutoring so we can best match you with a student.

Time: 3:10 – 4:00 pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Subjects: Algebra, English, Reading in Language Arts, World Studies, Biology
Senn High School contacts: Principal Susan Lofton, Tony Cable, Tony Colston

Beyond tutoring, there are many mentoring opportunities. Coach Tony Colston is leading the mentoring program.

In addition, I’m planning to attend fall and winter athletic events, and I hope many of you will join me.

Please let me know if you have comments, questions or suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,
Elizabeth Shank
