The mentoring program is for 3rd
grade students. Once a week community members will come in to meet with a student and be their role model during their lunch and recess hour.They will play games, work on homework, have discussions, make a craft, or go outside. This mentor will meet with their mentee for the entire school year.
Below is an explanation of how the 2Mentor1 Program works:
The 2Mentor1 Program is a program that allows for students to receive additional support from a member of our community. The mentor meets with the student once a week in school for 1 hour during lunch and recess. The program is made available to Lacey Elementary students in grades 3rd thru 5th.
·Support a young person through an ongoing, one-to-one relationship
·Serve as a positive role model and friend
·Build the relationship by planning and participating in joint activities
·Strive for mutual respect
·Build self-esteem and motivation
·Help set goals and work toward accomplishing them
·Support academic growth and development
Having a community member visit the student on a weekly basis provides support, guidance, and helps build a student’s confidence. Students, families, and teachers all benefit from the support of a Mentor. Students involved in the program feel valued and it shows in their success in the classroom.
