One of our Bluffton NOC students, Lakyndra, is a reporter for her school paper and recently wrote a short column about NOC:
“Hey kids! Do you need help with your homework? Well, if you do, come to Simmons Cay or Bluffton House for NOC. It stands for Neighborhood Outreach Connection. NOC is an afterschool program that tutors kids and helps them with their homework.
Ms. Shirley Faulcon is the program manager. Some teachers and high school students come to volunteer.
NOC is a new program. It is open Monday-Thursday from 4:00-5:00 PM. You can win awards there for good behavior and great attendance. YOu can even use computers.
Dilan is a nine year old 3rd grader at Red Cedar Elementary. He attends NOC and likes the computers and the teachers. If he is done with his homework, he will help other kids. He goes every day for a good attendance prize.
If you need help with homework, give NOC a try.”
Thanks for the great review, Lakyndra!
