May 3 at the Movies!


Greetings Volunteer!
This Saturday we are changing venues!!!  We will be at the He Cares
Center in Project 6. 
ALSO TAKE NOTE: I have a new cellphone number so please
disregard the old number!  Smart 0998-551-3165
Happy Easter season!
We've had quite a long break since our last session was last April 5. 
Our basic drama workshop for the children was very new and quite interesting!
Now we move onto another summer event, a film showing!
Why a movie?  So the children can enjoy while listening to English
and in a way be more familiar with it.
We are not yet sure which movie we will be playing.  It might be Ice Age
or another fun animation film.  Do you have any suggestions? 
WHY NOT A FIELD TRIP?This summer is a bit different.  Due to an accident occuring to one of the children
from He Cares (not from our area), the foundation is working on their safety rules
with DSWD.  Until then, we are not allowed to take the children out of the center.
We won't be meeting in Brgy. Bungad until this is all worked out.  Let's hope and pray
this is settled soon!
This Saturday, we will serve some merienda at around 2:45pm.  If you would like to bring
snacks (like some biscuits) so the children will have something to munch on while the
movie is running, please do!  The merienda will be pancit and juice so it's okay as well if
you don't bring any.  Please help us serve the merienda and mingle with the children.
Bring a joke or magic trick if you can!
On other news...
We are still working on Sunday tutoring.  We are still waiting for the number
of children from the area heads so we know how many tutors we need.
Helping a child to love learning is surely a step towards a brighter
future.  Please know that you don't have to be a teacher to join us.  You never
know how much of an impact you will make on a child from the streets. 
Even for a short while you can touch a life.  You can touch the future!
Come this Saturday?
