Join the (written) World of Connection

If you have ever received a letter in the mail or a nice holiday greeting you know how nice it feels.

To many people it could be an intimidating prospect to write a letter, send a greeting card or address an envelope. Tutors, this might be a good thing to go over with your adult learner and offer your assistance. The winter holiday season provides the perfect setting to connect with people far (or near) through written communication.

It’s always a good time to write to someone and it does not need to be complicated. To whom will you write?

Congratulations, Elsa!

The Literacy Office wants to extend our congratulations to Elsa Escobar, one of our ESL students. Elsa's recipe for Almond-Spice Christmas Wreath Cookies was a finalist in Cook's Country Magazine! The cookies sound delicious. Way to go, Elsa! You can find Elsa's recipe in the December/January 2015 issue of Cook's Country.
