At its essence, ‘Whiz Kids’ is a tutoring program fueled by a partnership of volunteers from Lakewood church of Christ and Foothills Elementary School on Green Mountain. Dedicated volunteers, teachers and administrators are willing to spend time with students who may be falling behind in school. City Connector Reg Cox has been the catalyst for Whiz Kids at Lakewood. Josh Shapiro, current principal at Foothills embraces this simple, but powerful premise: “When children gain self-esteem, the sky’s the limit.”
Thursday, Dec 8, volunteers, Lakewood staff, Foothills Elementary teachers and administrators gathered to celebrate Whiz Kids academic achievement with a grand party and dinner at Lakewood. And of course, Jolly old St. Nick was there.
