Dr Judy Crates, Principal Castro School says:

Testimonial :
"Buddies4Math offers Castro at-risk students the opportunity to experience math as a recreational activity, not just a class at school. Dedicated volunteers from local middle and high schools work in small group activities in math concepts and applications with third and fourth graders every Friday afternoon. Our students look forward to the session and it's amazing to see how excited and engaged they are in math. Not only has the program changed student's attitudes and improved their confidence about math, but their math achievement on state tests has also improved. Our Latino students gained 64 points on the API last year, contributing to a 43 point gain for the school."

We will be hosting a Family Math Night for all second grade families at Castro School on Friday April 19. We had a kick off meeting last Friday to plan the event logistics. Teams of volunteers are working on ideas for game stations, fundraising, posters, and assembling take home game packets for families.


We are off this week and next week because of  Spring vacation schedules. We will be back tutoring Fourth grade on Thursday April 18.
