City Year

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to a new school year! We are excited to announce that City Year will be serving at Hallsville Elementary School in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms. City Year is a program that unites young people of all backgrounds for a full year of service in public schools. City Year AmeriCorps members serve as a tutors, mentors, and role models in the classroom. City Year AmeriCorps members will work with teachers and staff at the school to support our students. They provide the following services for our students:

  • 1-on-1 and group tutoring: If a City Year AmeriCorps member is serving in your child’s classroom, she/he will provide additional attention and support to students, helping them catch up if they are behind and keeping them focused in class. City Year AmeriCorps members work 1-on-1 and in groups with students who might need additional help, helping to strengthen their Literacy and Math skills.
  • After-school Program: City Year AmeriCorps members support the after-school program at Hallsville Elementary School providing academic support and homework help, as well as an enrichment curriculum.
  • Overall enhancement of school climate: City Year AmeriCorps members help organize school-wide events and initiatives for students, faculty and parents. From family engagement events to morning greetings, AmeriCorps members help make students feel welcomed and excited about coming to school every day. Look for future announcements about upcoming events!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your support of this program and dedication to our students.

Sincerely,
