New Mentoring Program
Stephanie Hathcox, Shark Correspondent
Cedar Key School has a whole new mentoring program for middle and high school students and teachers. Participants in last year’s mentor program did not get to meet very often, or as much as students and teachers had hoped for. According to many students, meetings were becoming competitions to see which mentor gave the most goodies to the students. This year, students and teachers will meet during scheduled meeting times to discuss grades, test scores, and academic related subjects. Mentors will remember their mentees with cards at Christmas, on their birthdays, and offer encouragement throughout the year.
