Tuesday – After School Program Extends Hours

A big teachers rally scheduled this Tuesday, November 19, at the Indiana State Capital has prompted many schools, including Lafayette School Corporation and Tippecanoe School Corporation schools, to close for the day. In support of local teachers, the LUM After School Program will provide childcare for the entire day on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

School officials say so many teachers requested personal time off for the rally that they wouldn’t be able to find enough substitute teachers to cover classrooms. It is being reported that at least 4,000 teachers have registered for the rally.

LUM Students Explore the Arts in the City


The LUM After School Program students recently took a trip to First Baptist Church, Lafayette, to participate in the 12th annual Sidewalk Chalk Festival.

The students spent the afternoon drawing masterpieces in chalk on the city’s sidewalks and enjoying the artwork created by local artists.

Thanks to First Baptist Church for inviting our students each year. They learned a lot and had a blast.

Spotlight on Superstar LUM Volunteer

Isabel Petkov – LUM Immigration Clinic Volunteer

Originally from Brookfield, Illinois, Isabel Petkov lives in West Lafayette with her parents, Chris & Ivan, and her sisters, Claire (16) & Anna (13). She graduated from Harrison High School and now attends Indiana University, where she’s majoring in Law & Public Policy with a minor in Spanish, and was a member of the Civic Leaders Living Learning Community. With the LLC, Isabel volunteered at a homeless shelter and community garden and registered people to vote. 

At LUM this summer, Isabel volunteered with the Immigration Clinic — translating, meeting with clients, and assisting the director. While in high school, she also volunteered with the LUM After School Program. The experience reminded Isabel of something her grandmother tells her often — “Tomorrow’s Never Promised.” She now realizes that every little thing she does to assist someone in need has an impact. She shared, 

“Working with clients at LUM has been eye-opening. The Immigration Clinic is really needed and necessary. The LUM staff is welcoming, hard-working and thorough. It’s been rewarding to know, even ‘I’ can help.” 

This work has given Isabel a lot to think about as she develops her plan of study at IU and starts thinking about her career and advanced degrees.

In addition to school and volunteering, Isabel loves hanging out with her friends, supporting her sisters’ activities, reading — and occasionally listening to K-Pop.
