Operation Feed supports the English School. We have approximately 150 students from 6 to 81 years of age. Classes usually are one day a week for a two hour session. This is to help the teachers driving from all over Lakeside only having to commit to one trip each week. We are working on having two teachers for each group. That way there are two sets of hands to help and when one teacher has an obligation, the other is there to continue teaching.
Ginny and Dave provided the funds to rent a house for the English School. This means that we can offer classes 7 days a week. Given the large outside space, we can accommodate 6 classes at a time. We provide the materials for the classes- everything from the worksheets, to Bingo Boards and flashcards, to YouTube availability.
The leaders of the school are Carol Curtis and Elle Aenchbacher and welcome interested people to visit the school or schedule a time for a tour and introduction to our program.
Over the "stay at home" phase of the CoronaVirus, Ell and Carol have been preparing notebooks and lesson plans that are available to all teachers. If you want to teach a unit on Animals or Jobs/Careers, we have it ready for your use. And due to the generosity of Laura White and others, we have two printers ready for you to make copies right there at the school.
