When entering high school as a freshman you may feel a little apprehensive. But not to fear, your mentors are here!
This year the school has decided to give selected freshmen mentors to help this transition be easier. The students are paired with a teacher or community member who will be of assistance whenever the student is struggling with academics or needs advice in other areas. The mentors and students meet occasionally to discuss attendance issues, to check progress reports, and to work out any issues that may be hindering the progress in school.
Mr. Hubbard also planned a very nice luncheon on Friday, October 22nd so the students and adults could share some words of wisdom while eating a relaxed lunch at school. Different community members attended to encourage all the students present. Mr. Hubbard stated at the luncheon that “We wanted to be proactive with the ninth grade class and give them mentors.”
These mentors will monitor the student’s attendance and grades to help them in any areas they may need help in. Mentors are influential men and women in the school and community. The mentors and mentees had a wonderful lunch provided by Ms. Lockett’s family and consumer science classes.
