Tutors needed for All Souls After-School Program 
Students enjoyed a great first week back at All Souls' After-School program. They made ceramic fish plates with art teachers at St. Martins, artistically recognized Tulane for the Mac computers they donated to the lab, received a Top Scholar popcorn machine from St. James and learned how to exit the building as top scholars.
Get involved!
The program needs more tutors for Thursday evenings. If you can help out, or know someone looking for extra community service hours, please contact Happy Johnson at [email protected] or 504-315-9955
