Latino's in Action (LIA) is a leadership class where our Latino students can use their bilingualism to tutor kids at Barnett Elementary each day. Our students tutor kids in all grades, and help in all subjects, with the purpose of promoting literacy.  The elementary students receive one on one tutoring from an LIA student.  We currently have 28 students from the 8th and 9th grade that participate in the class. They are required to meet GPA requirements, be bilingual and show a positive attitude and exhibit leadership skills. Our students do a great job showing leadership and service in the community and in our school!
