School Programs

It Starts With The Shoes director Jim Frank was busy this past winter assisting the Withrow High School English Language Learning Program with their efforts to introduce non-ELL teachers to the program’s participants. Since 2018, Jim has organized a Futsal league where the teachers coach the kids, many of whom are from South and Central America, the Mideast, Africa, and Southeast Asia. The 120 students and 10 teachers who participate make this a very successful program. Maria Hildago, the ELL (ESL) program coordinator is instrumental in recruiting the teachers and players. ISWTS is extremely grateful to be asked to help by providing the Futsal Goals, balls, pennies and The Referee, aka Coach Jim. Many thanks to the teachers and students who make this a great event. Congratulations to all of the participants, teachers and students alike.
