Student Mentoring Program
Every incoming fifth-grader is assigned an eighth-grade mentor who supports him through his first year at San Miguel. Fifth-grade mentees are seated with their eighth-grade mentor, friend, and role-model during every lunch period, allowing them the opportunity to learn more about each other and consistently nurture their relationship. In addition, special team building activities, such as pumpkin carving, apple picking, and service trips, are held regularly throughout the year to further strengthen this unique bond.
The Peer Mentoring Program is important to each student involved, helping fifth-graders to better adjust to the environment of a new school while giving eighth-graders a sense of gratification in being a role model. The older students also remember and value their own experiences as mentees, never forgetting how they were impacted by their mentors. This unique relationship teaches both groups of students the importance of creating and maintaining a trusting relationship.
