L CC Leap Frog, a tutoring program for first and second graders, was start- ed in 1989 at St. Peter ' s Episcopal Church with 12 children. Since then it has grown to three locations with over 74 kids and 345 volunteers serving as tutors, enrichment volunteers, or car- pool drivers. Funded by the United Way contributions from Oxford- University Methodist Church and St. Peters, Leap Frog is described by assistant director Amanda Pekoe as " one of the most rewarding experi- ences a student can have during their time here at Ole Miss. " Students whose teachers feel they need additional attention that they may not be receiving at home recom- mend them to Leap Frog who in turn, pairs the student with a college student who will serve as a tutor for either one or two semesters. Twice a week the tutor meets either at St. Peters, O-U Methodist, or Lafayette Elementary School for one hour tutoring session followed by an hour of playtime. Occasionally a special speaker is brought in to teach the students about topics ranging from bus safety to folk art and Indian history. Students are also treated with field trips to St. Peter ' s Halloween pumpkin patch and a local petting zoo. Also, at the end of the semester a Christmas party is held with each child getting a present, their picture made with Santa, and playing pie-in-the-face BINGO where the win- ners get to choose any of the volun- teers and shove a whip cream pie in their face. Speaking from first hand knowledge, every hour spent at Leap Frog is an hour you can treasure. Not only are you having fun but you are helping a child establish basic reading, writing and mathematical skills they will use the rest of their life. Not to mention the joy everyone involved experiences when a child reads a com- plete book by themselves, makes an " A-I- " on a spelling test you both worked so hard studying for, or is able to count to a hundred for the first time. - Reed Martz 60 • Student Life
