Another year in which our kids from the Tutoring program take part of the local 3 race Cross Country  series at the Alamosa Parks and Recreational  Center.  The entries are free and this event gives  parents and children the opportunity  to go outside and be active. Nine of our kids represented ITA Tutoring program well. In recognition for running the three races all of them received a free T-shirt from the parks and recreational center.
 Nothing is more rewarding than heading  back to the center to do homework after a race and  hear only positive feed backs from the kids. This is an event that all of them look forward to participate.  The highlight of this year is the parents involvement.  Each parent took action and helped organize this years transportation.

Araceli is a talented girl both athletically and academically. Araceli is the oldest of 4 children. She loves collecting items. She is in charge of the ITA library. She takes leadership from time to time and helps little ones with homework.  On the last race she finish 6th with a huge personal best of 7:23.
At the end of the race her comment was " I don't know why, but my head really started hurting after I crossed the finish, that is kind of weird" 

The New ITA Generation. Once their older brothers and sisters move on theses are the kids that will be taking over at the Tutoring Center. For now, they enjoy coming to the races to cheer or walk with the other youngsters. Lupita, standing is the one leading the way as she already competed in this years races. Her best time 11:49.

Alan 8 is a handful, he has been making huge strides academically. Loves math and spelling.

A balance between activities and studying makes learning very effective. This is something that you must find in a tutoring service especially when you are looking for a high school math/high school mathematics tutoring because practical teaching is really good and very effective, particularly for this age group.
