Taking High School By Storm

"I know, I know, I know, I know! I want to answer!"
"Me me me!"
"Three hundred thirty-three thousand, three hundred thirty-three!"

Those were just a few of the things overheard during a visit to a classroom at the San Pablo Vocational High School, where most of this year's JumpStart students are now well into their second month as seventh-graders. We heard that the students are showing off their new English skills and, even more important, great confidence as they enter this new phase. JumpStart Volunteer Teachers Seymour and Cameron Smith continue to work with them intensively, having them tackle everything from complex numbers to songs about the weather. We are pleased to say that today is Cameron's birthday! Happy Birthday, Cameron, and thanks so much for spending this day - and all of these months of hard work - with JumpStart.
