The transition from middle school to high school can be stressful and confusing for some students. The 9th grade mentoring program is designed to help ease the transition and provide skills to help students succeed in high school. Students and teachers also spend time in their mentoring groups planning service learning. Teachers and students use a variety of technology to schedule meetings and plan
advisory sessions. Students are also using Blogger this year to reflect on their mentoring lessons and share their growth. Recent generation rivalries prompted a post about the idea of houses within the school similar to Hogwarts. Check out Yizel, Ana Paula, Steven or Miguel's blogs to get a better understanding of how 9th grade mentoring is engaging students in the school culture of caring and service.
