I received the following e-mail today from Ms. Marlene Citraro from Champaign Central High School:
Central High School is having its Parent/Teacher Conferences this coming Thursday, February 21, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and Friday, February 22 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
We have many Hispanic parents that need a translator when having their conferences with the teachers.
I would like to know if your students that help in my classes could help in these two days. I know they have to check if they are not busy in these hours.
Please, if you have students that want to help, let me know their names and the times they could help. This way, I could coordinate with the secretary.
Thanks again for your help,
This is a wonderful opportunity for our Spanish community service learning students to work extra hours--especially for those who got a late start in the semester. You do not have to be signed up to work at Central High School--or any of the schools--to be able to help out at this event.
If you would like to work at the parent-teacher conferences, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information:
3. times available
I will pass that information along to Ms. Citraro. I hope that at least some of you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to help parents and teachers better communicate for the benefit of the students.

In the next few days I will post something about the vocabulary that you can anticipate using in this situation.
