Red Flyer Arithmetic program organizing

"Building on the success and contributions of the Red Flyer Reading Program, organizers are now planning to start its equivalent in arithmetic. We seek volunteers who would give, say, 25-30 minutes twice a week to go to the Intermediate School and work one-on-one with a student the teacher would assign, said Malcolm Ferrier, a coordinator. Work space and a variety of resource materials are available. School staff will be very supportive. There will be an orientation meeting at the Intermediate school community room Tuesday, Sept 26, at 10 a.m. For more information call 221-5262 or 321-0752. These programs are of immense help to the students, Ferrier said. Any help in establishing sound reasoning and numeracy fundamentals supports all that the boys and girls will do thereafter.And don't be at all intimidated by 'arithmetic' - it's just grades 3 through 5!Men are particularly encouraged to support the program.
