Happy Wednesday everyone!

The universities are: University of Wisconsin-Madison, Northwestern University (Chicago) and University of Illinois at Chicago. The cost of transportation, lodging and 1 meal is $30/person. We are taking names and giving priority to 10th and 11th graders in Lamton, but we will open it to the broader community if we don’t generate enough response. Please email us with your name, school and grade ASAP if you would like to attend. The registration deadline is Sunday at 3pm.  
3. The next ACT prep class is on March 8th from 1-3pm.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I hope this snowy morning is not making your way to work, or school, a bit more difficult than usual! I just wanted to remind you that there is a Lamton session this Friday from 6-8pm at the TAFM community center! We hope to see everyone there!

Updates:
Last week, we had 13 students and 6 tutors at the tutoring session. Some students thought that we did not have a tutoring session then because the students were on break. Just as a reminder, Lamton tutoring sessions will be held every Friday unless we notify you about a cancelation through our website, email, Facebook or Twitter. Please feel free to email or call us as well if you are unsure.
Lamton Dinner Fundraiser will be on Feb. 7th at 6pm at TAFM! Please spread the word! We are selling tickets! Tickets are $10 advance; $15 at the door. Attached is a flyer that includes all necessary information about the event. Please contact a Lamton board member to purchase tickets. Or, if you would like to sell a ticket bunch, please let me know! As you know, we are fundraising heavily this year to offset the cost of the (out of state) college visits we are planning to have for the spring. We can only do this if we are able to successfully secure the funds necessary! This is an all hands on deck effort so please help out as much as you can and in any way you can!
Thank you. -The Lamton Board
