I hope you had a full and relaxing summer. The Academic Center for Excellence team had a busy but quiet summer, quiet only because we did not host summer programming. Instead, we focused on our ACE space, team, professional development, new students and families visiting for Lake Days, among other energizing tasks including the common reads for AY2018-19.
We have some changes in the ACE. Our new Math Center Coordinator, Dr. Daniel Cheshire, joined the ACE team in July and has been developing workshops and interactive mathematics learning tools, including a Discovery Lab. What is a Discovery Lab? You’ll need to stop by the Academic Center for Excellence to find out more. We also have rearranged our space. Sabrina now has a desk and is eager to welcome visitors to the ACE.
Our Mary Francine Danis Writing Center schedule will be available starting August 20, 2018. The Tutoring Center and Math Center schedules will open during the second week of class. We have that week delay in schedule availability because, just like you, our peer tutors are sorting out their class schedules.
I’m excited for the start of our new academic year and look forward to seeing you at the ACE. Please be certain to mark your calendars for our Open House on Wednesday, August 29, from 12-2pm, and to drop in.
