Two GREAT Opportunities

An Opportunity to Remember
Tutors and Mentors are you looking for an event to take your students to in the near future???? Well here is a perfect opportunity for you and your student to get together out in the community. On April 26, 2008 at 12:00 P.M. Northwestern University will be hosting their Annual Spring Football game at Ryan Field in Evanston, IL. The game set up is an intersquad scrimmage opened to the public to give the first glimpse of Wildcats as they prepare for the 2008-2009 Season. This is a FREE event and everybody who attends will have the opportunity to stretch with the Cats before the game and get autographs from the players and coaches after the game. Also many of the former Northwestern University football stars, many of whom are currently in the NFL and other highly successful careers, will be in attendance signing autographs throughout the game. NFL players such as Noah Herron of the Green Bay Packers, Austin King of the Seattle Seahawks, Luis Castillo of the San Diego Charges, and Barry Cofield of the 2008 Super Bowl Champions, the New York Giants. This is also an opportunity for many of the students of the Cabrini Connections program to interact with the players and listen to how they used tutor/mentor programs like Cabrini Connections on their path to future and current careers!
So here is the perfect opportunity for you and your student to get out and only enjoy the great weather and a great game, but also an opportunity to interact with positive role models and current and future NFL stars!
The Perfect Attendance Challenge
The staff at the Cabrini Connections and the Tutor/Mentor Connections programs strives to not only encourage positive attendance, but also to reward positive attendance. New Administrative Coordinator, EL DaSheon Nix, has created The Perfect Attendance Challenge for the students and the tutor/mentors of the Cabrini Connections Wednesday and Thursday tutoring sessions. Here are the details of The Perfect Attendance Challenge:
April 2, 2008-May 22, 2008 is the 3rd quarter of the Cabrini Connections program for the 2007-2008 school year. If on a Wednesday or Thursday tutoring session during the 3rd quarter the attendance reaches a perfect 100% EL DaSheon Nix will personally host a Pizza Party for all of the tutor/mentors and students who were present on that day. So the Wednesday tutoring session will have an opportunity to earn the Pizza Party and the Thursday tutoring session will have an opportunity to earn the Pizza Party.
*special note* In order to have attendance count for that day tutor/mentors and students have to be signed in before 6:10 and must stay until at least 7:45 UNLESS there is an emergency situation causing a student or tutor/mentor to arrive late or leave early. And the organizations staff will have the right to determine if the reason is valid to still count attendance for that day.
So The Perfect Attendance Challenge has been set…can and will YOU meet this challenge?!?!
If there are any questions, concerns, or comments please direct them to EL DaSheon Nix.
