Logan County's Concerned Citizens nonprofit organization has begun its tutoring program once again and is inviting grades first through eighth to take advantage of the many opportunities offered to help those who need a little more instruction at the end of the school day.

The program is sponsored by the Concerned Citizens and along with volunteers provides safe educational enrichment opportunities for school-age children.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the program will open its doors from 3:30-5 p.m. All classes will be held upstairs at the KP Hall located on Fifth Street in Russellville.

Participants will be helped by educated volunteers who will focus on reading and math instruction as well as allowing time for getting homework completed. The primary focus of the tutoring program is reading comprehensions with written and verbal communication skills.

The tutorial program maintains the FLOW behavioral expectation from the summer program. Commitment to attendance with a no cell phone policy contribute to FLOW (listen and learn).

FLOW means:

Follow directions the first time

Listen and learn

Obey (program adults) and respect all others and self in language and actions

Work hard and try

The program relies on donations of school supplies. If you would be willing to donate supplies such as paper, pencils, crayons, glue, construction paper, calculators, etc., they would be appreciated.

The Concerned Citizens Tutoring Program has helped dozens of children through the past several years and looks forward to reaching many more. For more information about the program or to volunteer, please call 270-725-8721.
