I was thinking the Sunday after this one so we have time to invite families and have well planned events for them. I can't realistically pull it off by this Sunday, as I am totally booked with curriculum night etc. until Friday @ 9pm.

Yeah let's make Sunday the goal!
I'd be more than happy to tutor (especially math!), but I also agree that it'd be important to have kid's books and activities that deal with issues related to why their parent(s) might be coming to the occupation. I can get a pretty good amount of materials if there is interest.
Kelley, if you could reach out to those families from Bloombergville, that'd be incredibly helpful!

It was a great real world experience for families that wanted to teach their kids about social and economic justice. I'm not sure if I can make it happen this week end but maybe the weekend after? Interested?

I don't expect that to fully materialize for another few days, but in the meantime, I want to reach out to folks again to see if there's is any interest in contributing to this endeavor.
