I just received the roster list. So some quick demographics for the beginning of the year.
It looks like as expected the kids skew towards 4th grade this time. Unfortunately I did not maintain gender parity. I may come back to this next quarter and see if I can recruit some more girls with the teachers' help.
13 4th graders
2 5th graders
And unlike last year I actually know 7 of the kids before starting. That includes my own son who will be joining me this year now that he's in 4th grade.
Update: There are now 2 girls on my waiting list. I've put out a call for another volunteer to help.
