Reading and Math Class

The First Tee of Tulsa hosted its Third Annual FREE educational opportunity in August. We hired professional educators to come in and teach a Reading and Math class to participants entering 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade. Classes were held at The First Tee of Tulsa Learning Center at Mohawk Park Golf Course. This was super way for us to prepare our participants for the beginning of school. One child exclaimed, "Now, I can read!."
