Guadalupe Learning Lab expanding!!!

We have outgrown the old Learning Lab in Guadalupe.  So this February we are moving into a newer, much bigger double suite in the Mercado.   See the pictures – we have well over twice the space – two big rooms, 4 cubicles for 1:1 tutoring for high schoolers, storage for the new moms club and its own bathroom!   Come on down and visit – we are open mon – fri 3:30 – 7:30 pm each week.   We are still in the Mercado – now on North East corner next to the boxing gym.

We also celebrate the community fund raising being done to help support this new space and its higher rent.   We have a fund raising committee of some of the parents of the kids in tutoring and they are doing one or two events per month to help support the lab.  Last weekend was a bake sale in the community that raised $300!  We have another this weekend and a kickball tournament the weekend after.   This really is a community led and supported effort.
