Please join us on April 20, 2013, as we welcome spring with our 4th Annual Spring Swing to raise money for Greengate School and the tuition assistance fund. The event will again be held in the Greengate courtyard in front of the school at Lincoln Mill in Huntsville. This fun, casual, outdoor event features delicious cuisine from 8 locally celebrated restaurants and caterers. We are excited to feature, once again, the timeless sound of the Swingin’ Medallions for a night of dancing under the stars.
On February 2nd, 2012, thousands of Alabama residents are going to show their support for their favorite nonprofit during Alabama Gives Day. On that day, every donation will help us further the important work of our organization.
Greengate is pleased to once again offer high quality training in structured, multi-sensory language instruction. This Orton-Gillingham course will provide participants with the opportunity to learn the structure of our written language as well as systematic, multisensory techniques for teaching students with dyslexia and other language-learning differences.
Registration is limited to the first 16 applicants for the Associate Level course. All classes will be held at Greengate School.
Associate Level Coursework Overview:
Following completion of the course work, students may choose to participate in a supervised practicum leading to membership at the Associate level in the Orton-Gillingham Academy of Practitioners and Educators. The requirements for admission to the Academy at the Associate level are: minimum 60 hours of course work conducted by an Academy Fellow, 100 hours of supervised one-to-one tutoring, as well as a selection of readings about dyslexia. Those who would like to learn more about the practicum should contact Marcia Ramsey at 256-551-4439.
