Today is National Teacher Day in the U.S. and this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, so we just want to give a big thank you to all our teachers here at the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program! It’s been a big challenge switching over from regular classes to online classes, but they’ve done a great job! Thank you for all your hard work and patience!
Last week we told you about how our Culture Club students attended a special workshop about art led by the Creative Center’s Robin Glazer and got to take an artwork home. Well, now you can take a look at the art for yourself and read each student’s description below. Enjoy!
Last week our Adult Literacy Program students did some volunteer work with our Older Adults program, helping serve a Thanksgiving meal and also delivering Meals on Wheels. As you can see from the pictures above, our students had a great time!
On October 13th, Sunday, our W2 students volunteered at 6 & B Garden. After the volunteer work, they enjoyed coffee and mint water prepared by the garden. Thank you so much for hosting us, Barbara!
The students learned about the garden while walking around and listening to Barbara and Michael.
The students raked leaves, swept and picked up garbage on the streets around the garden, and cleaned the kids’ play area by digging the soil with shovels and moving the soil in a wheelbarrow to the pond. They also gathered leaves and sawed and cut tree branches and twigs to compost.
A bee was working hard, too.
Have you ever seen purple peppers? They were so exotic!
