Making Connections Through Literacy

Dear Friends of Teton Literacy Center, Thank you for taking the time to celebrate with us the successes of this past year at Teton Literacy Center. This report highlights the successes of our students, parents, volunteers, and staff. These successes are a result of this community’s generosity. They are a result of the hard work of students and families. They are a result of collaboration. Our hope is that this report brings these important stories forward. The past year was something I could never have imagined. The lessons learned continue to become apparent; including the understanding and perspective that innovations can be driven by crisis. At TLC, we are incredibly proud of the way our center has responded to the

recent pandemic, growing achievement gap, inequitable systems and more. Our community and team have created new ways to expand learning and reach students and families in need. By leveraging partnerships, we have amplified the intensity of our services, increased summer and out of school time learning, and helped to meet the changing needs of our families. Every hour counts, every day can make a difference. The work is not done. Together we can ensure that every student has the skills and tools to succeed.

Tutoring Program


The value and impact of the relationships built through our tutoring program was extremely evident this year as students navigated the realities of hybrid learning during a pandemic. Indeed, for some of our students, this relationship was the glue that held them together and the support provided in their sessions extended far beyond literacy.

Eighth grade student Lupe, who has been meeting with her tutor since 2015 is an excellent example of this (they are pictured here together in 2018!). Lupe, alongside her family, was quarantined for over thirty consecutive days this winter, obviously impacting her school attendance and performance. During this challenging time, her relationship with her tutor proved invaluable. TLC staff connected her with tech resources, supports at JHMS and within the community, all of which were reinforced by her tutor. Her tutor also checked in with Lupe every day to encourage her to do her homework, reach out to teachers and just plain be a listening ear and voice of encouragement.

TLC IS A NECESSARY SERVICE FOR OUR COMMUNITY! With all the communication gaps in traditional instruction, TLC fills in those gaps and provides a safe, non-judgmental approach to improve reading and writing skills. ~ TLC Parent

WE LOVE TLC The staff and their desire to help students who are struggling is amazing. During the pandemic, you were able to move the platform to Zoom, though not ideal, still a wonderful experience as it continued to provide stability and connections for our son ~ TLC Parent

Family Literacy Program


FAMILY FOCUS: As our families embraced a new year filled with COVID-19 safety precautions and uncertainty, many families increased participation at our center and excelled without hesitation. Anely Vazquez and her twin boys are the perfect example. Sahid and

Santiago attended Literacy Lab. Upon graduating, both boys could fully communicate their needs to their teachers and parents, in either Spanish or English! Anely participated in our ESL and LEX adult programs and surpassed two English language levels in one year. Through our programs, Anely felt empowered to reach for her dream career, and secured an English online course to start building her own hair and nail salon in town. As she stated, “Teton Literacy Center has helped my boys feel ready to enter Kindergarten next year, and has helped me grow in my personal life, as well as in my career.”

Enrichment Program


TLC has been working strategically to retain and engage our middle and high school students in programming once jobs and staying home unsupervised become options. Strong staff-family relationships; increased evidence of the importance of out-of-school time engagement, and college and career readiness; and student-led learning opportunities have been key to the early successes of this programming SPARK, our middle school Enrichment program, is a career exploration club that allows middle school students to choose, research and experiment with various skill sets and careers that they

might not otherwise have the option to explore. This year, students explored various art, engineering, cooking, and entrepreneurial career paths through hands-on learning. After exploring through student directed projects, students reflected on what high school and post-secondary education they would need to pursue these career paths professionally. A great success of this program has been seeing students get excited about their futures and connect the need to pursue college to have the life they want!

through workshops, family literacy nights and parent participation.

A FUN, ENGAGING ENVIRONMENT TLC does a great job connecting students with support within the community. Students get exposure to new ideas and concepts in a fun, engaging environment. ~ TCSD Teacher

Summer SOAR 2020 SOAR (Summer Opportunities in Academics and Recreation) is an 8-week intensive summer program for students entering 1st grade through 8th grade. SOAR aims to mitigate the “summer slide” where nationally students face a two to three-month skill loss in reading and math. TLC provided additional summer programming to entering kindergartners through our Practice K Program and 2nd-10th graders in our summer tutoring

program. Summer 2020 was the first year TLC offered high school programming during the summer and 6 students participated. Due to COVID safety measures, SOAR students were split into two cohorts and received 6 weeks of in-person instruction. SOAR was the first in-person programming students received after school closures. Teaching safety measures and supporting students’ socialemotional needs were prioritized alongside academic instruction.

Volunteer of the Year:


As a Teton Literacy Center volunteer, Lynn Straker is a huge asset to all programs within the organization and we are thrilled to recognize her as our Volunteer of the Year! Indeed, Lynn has played an integral role in disseminating college knowledge to TLC students and families. Her goal? Making college accessible for all students and families by connecting them with resources and educating them on the necessary steps. And through her work at TLC over the past year, she has done just that! Working to educate our high school students, Lynn has planned and led a number of multi-week small group sessions that provide students with crucial college and career information, from the basics to more in-depth topics such as financial aid. Lynn’s work with our high school students has been inspiring to say the least and the students love her. But, she hasn’t stopped there! Rather, Lynn also worked to plan and lead a college savings program with our preschool students and their families. Through this

program she also provided a piggy bank to all of our Literacy Lab students and introducing the concepts of financial skills and saving now for college. To complement this, Lynn also planned and helped lead an in-depth Parent Financial Workshop. These of course are just the highlights of Lynn’s efforts at TLC this year her contributions to TLC, our students, families and staff are endless, as is her obvious passion for this work! In sum, Lynn goes truly above and beyond as a volunteer, spending countless hours working alongside TLC staff to ensure students and families are provided ample resources for college and career readiness. From preschool to high school, she has done a phenomenal job of working with TLC students, always keeping them engaged while provoking knowledge growth. These efforts have been exceptionally well received by students and families who have been unable to access this type of intensive support elsewhere. Lynn’s efforts truly reflect Teton Literacy Center’s mission to change lives through the power of literacy and we are lucky to have her support!

To Our Wonderful Volunteers! There is no question,TLC programs looked a bit different this year -- we had virtual tutor pairs, staff-led small groups and we were also fortunate to be able to support our older students via contracted STEM tutoring. The Adult ESL classes also took to the virtual setting, and five parents graduated on to the next level. We were grateful to be able to offer our Literacy Lab Preschool and our after school clubs physically, instilling some sense of normalcy here at TLC, though even those programs looked slightly different (and were sadly sans volunteers). However, despite these tweaks, we are feeling overwhelmingly successful this year! Indeed, we served a record breaking 136 students in our tutoring program. Even more exciting, 100% of students showed growth this past school year! Ninety percent of parents said they saw an improvement in their child’s reading this year, and 98% stated seeing an increase in their child’s confidence as a learner. And we couldn’t have done this without your support! This year you provided our students with a familiar face, laughter and mentorship.We wanted to draw your attention to these stats as a reminder that what you all do every week for TLC has huge impacts on the students we serve. We wanted to say thanks for an incredible year, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall! ~ With Gratitude, The TLC Team
