The OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program has been operating at St. Ann Catholic School for 7 years. This program pairs volunteers from the parish age 50 and older with St. Ann students in grades K-4. Oasis tutors come to St. Ann once a week to work one-on-one with the students. They use a curriculum designed to build reading and language skills. Each tutor completes a comprehensive 2-day training. They also attend the Protecting God’s Children workshop.
We currently have 8 Oasis volunteers working at St. Ann School:
- Ann Beckring
- Jan Henricks
- Karen Uhlenbrock
- Velga Lacey
- Carol Giblin
- Harry Beckenholdt
- Bernie Berns
- Alix Kirtland
The St. Ann students look forward to their weekly visit with the Oasis tutors! The volunteers love coming to St. Ann and being a part of our school family. Oasis is truly a win-win situation for everyone!
