Attention all freshmen! Remember how that awful storm came on through Worcester and caused your class meeting to get cancelled? Wasn’t that so sad? Well dry your eyes because we have rescheduled freshmen class meeting to be held Tuesday, February 16th from 2:00pm-4:00pm. We will be preparing for the 2016 Youth Jobs Rally. It is going to be so much fun and we get to hang out with each other! Also, if anyone from the other classes would like to join they are more than welcome to do so as we prepare for the Youth Jobs Rally.
Youth Jobs Rally
On Thursday, February 18th we will be going to a Youth Jobs Rally. What is a Youth Jobs Rally? So glad you asked. At this rally we will be going to the State House and advocating for youth jobs. We believe that young people should have the ability to get a job but there isn’t always an opportunity available for young people. Come out and have your voice be heard! We will be meeting at the Worcester Youth Center located at 326 Chandler St. at 8:30am. We will be taking a bus to Boston. Please pack a lunch and snacks. We should be back around 4:30pm.
Rhode Island College Tour!
Hey folks there is going to be a sweet college tour of not one, not two but three colleges in Rhode Island. We will be meeting at the Carriage House at 8am and then we will be touring New England Institute of Technology, Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University. Lunch will be provided and we will be returning at 5pm.
Holy Cross Tour
On February 23, we will be touring Holy Cross. Please meet at 51 Cedar St. at 2:30pm. If you are unable to meet at 2:30pm, please meet us at the Holy Cross admissions office at 3:00pm. We should be back around 5:30pm.
Tutoring at Clark
Now is a great time to take advantage of free tutoring at Clark. Just a reminder that tutoring is mandatory for anyone with a 75 or below. Do you have a grade of 75 or below? Don’t worry; be happy because you are required to attend tutoring at Clark to get some extra help to bring that grade up! But where do I go? So glad you asked! Come to Clark University! We will be having tutoring help along with Upward Bound. Tutoring will be held in the Jonas Clark building. On Wednesdays tutoring is located in the following rooms, JC 105 (Computer Lab), JC 206 and JC 218. On Thursdays it is located in rooms JC 102 and Sackler 120. Remember that this is open to ALL of you if you need help with your homework but required of you if you are below a 75 in any class.
