Two new programs have been added. Our upper level participants are doing a six week Intensive English Program. The students do not speak Spanish in class and are making remarkable progress.
Our Child Care Program is guided by Maria Martinez with the help of Sr. Catherine, Pat Cervantes, Virginia Villareal and Kelly Langford. Child Care has developed a Reading Program. Its goal, with the mother's help is to encourage reading at a younger age. When they go to school they are familiar with books and love to read them. Also the parents are encouraged to read books in English.
Our computer teachers, Joe, Ana and Tom have developed a multifaceted program that allows the participants to progress at their own pace and take what they learn to their work environment.
Thanks to the PMC participants, Presentation Sisters and Associates who sold tickets at local churches, our Fall Raffle this year was a success, raising over $7,000.00. We are grateful for all who purchased tickets both locally and by mail. The drawing was held on October 25th. On October 25th we also celebrated the participant’s birthdays for the months of August, September and October. Some Presentation Sisters and Associates joined us to remember and celebrate the 300th anniversary of Nano Nagle’s birth. Nano was the Foundress of the Sisters.
