Our last day of English classes is Wednesday, May 9th. On that day, we will have a potluck party. Please bring food from your country to share so we can all learn about different kinds of food. The party will start at 10:00AM.
We will not have summer classes, but you can come to our conversation group on Friday mornings, 10:00-noon at Lucky’s Market, in the Community Room, behind the wine section. Lucky’s Market is across from Kirkwood Community College on Lower Muscatine Rd.
Fall registration for English classes will be on Wednesday, September 5th at 9:45 AM at the Good News Bible Church, 845 Pepperwood Lane. The first day of class will be Monday, September 10th at 9:45 AM.
We have had a fun year, serving about 146 students in our daytime program and 37 in our evening class (in partnership with ICCSD and NCJC) at the Broadway Neighborhood Center. Our students this year come from 36 countries and speak at least 24 different languages.
Special thanks to the University of Iowa Conversation Center and MERGE for partnering with us to create Community Conversation. Other projects have included Friendship Pals, matching students with community members for conversation and friendship, and our advanced English book club.
Friendship Community Project thanks all our volunteer teachers, teaching assistants, registrar, director and other volunteers, our donors ( including Hills Bank, University of Iowa Community Credit Union, and the Community Foundation of Johnson County) and the Good News Bible Church for providing us with classroom space. We couldn’t do this without all of you!
